Bank Employees helped build a home
Watertown - More than 30 employees of ISB Community Bank recently volunteered to help the Habitat for Humanity of Rock and Jefferson Counties Inc. (HFHRJC) build a new home for a family in Watertown.
These employees volunteered almost 125 hours in total building the new home at 508 S. 10th St. Construction on the 1,100-square-foot ranch-style three-bedroom home started in mid July. ISB employees volunteered throughout three different days: Oct. 9, 10 and 12.
ISB employees installed windows, hauled lumber, dug a trench and prepped the outside of the house for siding. The on-site HFHRJC job coordinator kept the ISB employees busy with a variety of tasks.
This house is the first to be built in Watertown by HFHRJC. The plan is to have the home completed by Christmas. To reach this goal, they will need to have the weather cooperate and enough volunteers. HFHRJC is looking for volunteers with all kinds of skills sets. There is a full-time general contractor on site and several construction professionals. To volunteer, call HFHRJC at (608) 754-1228 or visit at www.hfhrjc.org.
"This was a great experience for ISB employees who did not mind getting their hands dirty with co-workers to support a great cause," stated Dan Westrope, president and CEO of ISB Community Bank. "It was hard work for some of us, but it teaches you to appreciate the people around you that do these types of jobs every day."
