During the 3rd Annual Week of Giving, the Mungo Homes Foundation continued its relationship with EmmanuWheel, who provides wheelchair ramps to the mobility-impaired individuals who cannot afford the cost of the ramps. In addition to building two ramps for deserving individuals, Mungo Team Members presented Executive Director, Chris Sharpe, with a check for $15,000.
According to Josh Miller, Mungo Homes Foundation Board Member and Columbia Purchasing Manager, “We love our involvement with EmmanuWheel. We have the resources to provide materials and the expertise to make quick work of building a ramp. Team Members are always quick to sign up for the limited spots we have when it’s time to prepare for an upcoming build.”
About the Mungo Homes Foundation & the Week of Giving
The 3rd annual Week of Giving took place December 4th – 8th throughout all nine Markets where Mungo builds. With a tradition of holiday giving, the Mungo Homes Foundation coordinated check presentations while Team Members used company-allotted volunteer hours leading with the mission “To serve so that others are empowered to thrive.” Week of Giving recipients were nominated by local Mungo Team Members and selected by each local Mungo Homes Foundation Board of Advisors based on qualifying criteria.
The Mungo Homes Foundation was established in 2021 with the sole mission of improving the communities in which Mungo builds by providing economic, educational, health, housing, and emergency hardship support for events such as natural disasters. A portion of each home sold is contributed to the Foundation and is invested in the local community of that home.
