Since 2017, InterDev has contributed both funding and construction assistance to
the effort and has renewed its commitment for 2019.
ALPHARETTA, Ga – March, 26, 2019 – InterDev, an Atlanta-area provider of information technology, security and geographic information systems (GIS) services, today announced it has been honored by Habitat for Humanity-North Central Georgia for its sponsorship and service in 2017 and 2018. To reinforce its continuing commitment to the organization, InterDev will again sponsor a home build in fall 2019.
As a sponsor, InterDev contributes at least $5,000 each year and engages a team of employees to build homes for families in need. During their 2018 build, InterDev participated in the “First Nail” event and completed the framing of the Dilly family home.
“We’re very appreciative of corporations like InterDev who partner and build homes for our local families,” said Sabrina Kirkwood, Director of Community Engagement of Home Repair for Habitat for Humanity-North Central Georgia. “We look forward to working with InterDev in 2019 to build another home for a deserving family.”
Habitat for Humanity-North Central Georgia is a not-for-profit, independently run and operated affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. Through the help and financial support of sponsors like InterDev, the non-profit saves thousands of dollars on labor costs, building affordable homes for families who would otherwise not be able to own one.
“We truly enjoy partnering with Habitat for Humanity-North Central Georgia,” said Gary Nichols, Founder & CEO of InterDev. “It allows our team to work together outside of the office while making a difference in others’ lives.”
