WH&SS Associates Help Build Homes and Hope for Area Families

Staff members from Work Health & Safety Services brought their hammers, nails, work gloves, and most importantly, their hearts to help build the homes of three deserving Canton families. Beginning in November 2003, WH&SS associates dedicated personal time on several Saturdays to support Habitat for Humanity of Greater Canton and their effort to build homes for low-income families who are inadequately housed.

With plans to participate in Habitat’s landscaping day in April, team members have already framed interior walls, set trusses and hung drywall.

“This has been a great team-building event for our staff,” said Bruce L. Hensley, D.O., Medical Director of Work Health & Safety Services. “But what’s most rewarding is knowing we’re contributing to an effort, which not only builds homes, but builds hope for these hardworking families,” he adds.

WH&SS team members include Dr. Hensley, Nancy and Rob Ross, Mike Valentino, Rose Lengyl, Amanda Milliken, Julie Davis, Darlene Warner, Barb and Jennifer Siegenthaler, Michelle Breckenridge and Jonathan Swift.
