The Mungo Homes Foundation is proud to recap the third-annual Week of Service, which took place May 6-10.  With a tradition of giving back to the community and adhering to the Mission Statement of “To Serve so that others are empowered to thrive,” Week of Service is a company-wide initiative across all nine Markets where Mungo builds. Local organizations were nominated by local Mungo Team Members and selected by each local Mungo Homes Foundation Board of Advisors based on qualifying criteria. Mungo Team Members used a total of 2,760 company-allotted paid volunteer hours to benefit 23 organizations.

According to Mungo Homes Director of Marketing and Foundation Board Member, Donna Wiggins, “it is a privilege for Mungo Team Members to offer expertise on this project that is absolutely in our wheelhouse. While we build and sell homes every day, the Mission of Habitat aligns with our belief that everyone deserves a safe, secure place to call home.”
