remodeling a restore
Vivint has long had a positive partnership with Habitat for Humanity. Numerous Vivint employees have volunteered with a variety of Habitat projects ranging from building homes to organizing items at Habitat’s ReStore. Field service technicians in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, recently joined ranks and undertook one of the biggest and most diverse Habitat projects to date.
Fourteen Vivint technicians gave of their time and efforts to the Vancouver ReStore’s remodel. The store makeover was a huge project for the non-profit organization, and as always the willing hands of volunteers played a vital role in its success. Volunteers gave their entire day to accomplish as much as possible. When all was said and done, the volunteers had dismantled shelves, painted a wall, stripped computers for hardware parts, painted six display booths, built storage carts and shelves for display use, reorganized merchandise, created a work area for warehouse works, and cleaned up.
“It’s amazing what they have done for us,” said interim CEO Tim Clark. “They worked hard, fast, and even worked past their scheduled booking. What an incredibly motivated and talented group!”
Director Stephani Samaridis also agreed that the volunteers accomplished more than anticipated. In an email to volunteers she said, “Our look has transformed, and you achieved more than we could ever have imagined. This makeover will position the store for further success and truly scream Habitat.”
The volunteers were equally grateful for their opportunity to give service. “We were so happy to be able to give back in the community,” volunteer and technician Tariq Ali said. “It was great to take and day and show what Vivint truly is all about.”
