Milwaukee Volunteers Make House Repairs for Habitat for Humanity
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, branch employees, a partnering independent insurance agent, families and friends volunteered to work
on two separate days painting exteriors and installing drywall at existing residences as part of Habitat for Humanity's "A
Brush With Kindness" initiative. Rather than funding the building of a new home from scratch, this program provides money
to fund minor home improvements made by volunteers for low-income homeowners.
"Our branch outreach was an opportunity, literally, to brighten a house with yellow paint and new drywall and, figuratively,
to brighten lives by showing we cared. I am grateful for HFH and their steadfast advocacy to transform lives through affordable
housing, and equally proud to work for a company and with colleagues who willingly dedicate their time to supporting such
endeavors," says Terese Shelledy, CPI senior appraiser.
Habitat for Humanity is a favored charity of numerous Chubb branches, departments, business units and employee resource groups.
Over the years, employees from coast to coast, often working with Chubb-appointed independent agents and brokers, have helped
to build and improve dozens of homes, donated thousands of dollars plus thousands of hours of "sweat equity" to provide decent
affordable housing to families and veterans.
