On Friday December 8, 2017, Norseman Construction participated in the annual Habitat for Humanity Gingerbread Build Challenge! For those of you who don’t know, Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit housing organization that provides affordable homes to families with low-income. As a home improvement company, we resonated especially well with this organization and what they stand for, and have been supporting Habitat for Humanity over the years.
Each year, for the last 15 years, Habitat for Humanity has been hosting The Gingerbread Build event. At this event, people of all ages can purchase a gingerbread house kit and build and decorate the house during the event, with all the proceeds going to local low-income families to help build them homes.
Unfortunately, Norseman Construction could not attend the event on the first week of December, so we purchased one gingerbread kit for each of our departments so that we could build it ourselves! We’re so thrilled to have six teams compete in our company challenge: the Potts Family, the Sales & Development Team, the Accounting Team, the Sherwin-Williams Team, the Project Managers Team, and the Construction Team. After a few hours of creative fun, the teams were successful in creating six unique gingerbread houses! Special thanks to Rally Sports Bar Smokehouse for having us!
We are currently hosting a competition on our Facebook page to see which team’s gingerbread house gets the most likes! Simply click on any of the images below and click on “view more” to be directed to our Facebook page where you can vote. The contest ends at 10:00 p.m. on Friday December 15th, 2017, so you have until then to check out the great work our departments did building the houses and vote for your favourite one!
Lastly, we wanted to share the excitement of participating in The Gingerbread Build and have donated a Gingerbread kit to each classroom of Blantyre Public School, located in the Hunt Club. We are very happy to be able to share such a fun event with the children of Blantyre Public School, and hope that they have as much fun building gingerbread houses as we did.
That’s all for the first holiday event here at Norseman Construction. Be sure to check back for our upcoming events!
