RedPeak Lends a Helping Hand for a Family Homestead Apartment Makeover

October 2010 – RedPeak Team Members came out to support Family Homestead, a local non-profit organization that provides emergency and transitional housing for homeless families with children along with support services to help parents work towards economic stability – and a place of their own. The RedPeak team cleaned, painted, repaired and restored several apartments for Family Homestead.

From exterior repairs and basic carpentry to interior repairs and of course, painting, the RedPeak team did a little bit of everything to ensure that the next residents of these Family Homestead apartments had a clean and functional place to call home.  Sponsored by RedPeak’s Sustainability Committee, this event spotlighted RedPeak’s belief that the social side of sustainability helps create a company and a community that endures.  It’s evident that the 30 plus RedPeak team members who showed up to pitch in that day believe this as well.

Joanna Pulido, who has been with RedPeak for over 6 years, enjoyed the team work demonstrated throughout the day.  “Everyone worked hard and worked well together.  It was a great opportunity for us to get to know some of our new team members better as well.”

Garrett Faillaci, who is new to RedPeak, agreed.  “It was a day of hard work, but I also had a chance to work with people I normally don’t get to interact with very much.  Being new to the company, it was also a great way to absorb some of the culture and see our core values in action.”

By the end of the day, three apartments received makeovers that included new blinds, doors, some appliances, trim work, window screens, re-stained kitchen cabinets, multiple minor repairs and fresh paint.  The difference was remarkable and everyone was pleased with the end results.
