On behalf of the Springfield Falcons Charitable Foundation, the Falcons staff volunteered its time Thursday, August 8 to work with the Greater Springfield Habitat for Humanity and help to build a home at 48 Quincy Street for a family in need.
“The Falcons organization has always given back to the community, and being involved in our small way yesterday with Habitat for Humanity, was very special,” team President Bruce Landon said. “It was great for our staff to bond together outside of the office and, more importantly, to support this most worthy cause.”
“The Charitable Foundation was created to support efforts such as this one,” foundation President Sarah Pompea said Friday. “The Greater Springfield Habitat for Humanity does work to help Springfield and its neighboring communities, and that is a cause we appreciate and are proud to contribute to.”
As its mission statement communicates, the Falcons Charitable Foundation “is committed to bettering the quality of life in the community where we live and work through the contribution of resources and acts of volunteerism.”
