In the spirit of giving back and in a partnership with Ply Gem—one of North America’s largest building products manufacturers—and Habitat for Humanity—an organization that brings people together to build homes, communities and hope—the Cumulus/Nash Country staffers took a break during their work day to help build homes for Habitat’s Home for Good Project, a campaign to build affordable housing across America.
“What we did in your parking lot at Cumulus was a panel build with Habitat for Humanity, where you build the walls of a future home,” says Ply Gem rep Vicki Frye. “The walls that were built here over the last two days will soon be loaded up and taken offsite. In August or September they will be used to build a finished home for a family. In this time we built one home that is about a 50×50-sized house. It includes interior walls and exterior walls of the house. You’ve framed out a home here in the last two days.”
The Cumulus/Nash Country staff, including Nash Nights Live radio hosts Shawn Parr, Elaina Smith and America’s Morning Show co-host Chuck Wicks, worked tirelessly hammering nails and building walls to form a house for a very deserving family.
