Week of Service: Epworth Children's Home, EmmanuWheel, Reconciliation Ministries, Family Promise - Columbia
The Mungo Homes Foundation is proud to recap the first-ever Week of Service, which took place June 20-24th. 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," Mungo Homes Team Members used company-allotted paid volunteer hours to support the following local organizations:
Team Members spent time at Epworth Children’s Home, whose mission it is “to serve children, youth and families through caring, safe, Christian communities, where hurts are healed, hope is nurtured and faith in God, self and others is developed” facilitating activities and outdoor games for the children on June 20th. This concluded a month-long drive to collect laundry supplies for residents.
On June 21st, Team Members performed general maintenance and clean-up for Reconciliation Ministries. Reconciliation Ministries was chosen because of its mission to unite donors, volunteers, and advocates to support those suffering from addiction and promote life-changing freedom, hope, healing, and reconciliation to God, themselves and others.
On June 22nd, Team Members performed general maintenance and clean-up at Family Promise, an organization party of a national movement to end family homelessness.
EmmanuWheel, whose mission is to provide wheelchair ramps to mobility-impaired individuals who cannot afford the cost. By addressing a specific need, EmmanuWheel shares the love of Christ in a practical way while creating lasting improvement in the lives of mobility-impaired individuals. Mungo Team Members built a ramp for a deserving individual at 166 Stephanie Drive in Lexington on June 23rd; and on June 24th, at 119 Crestwood Arch. This is the third project in which Mungo Team Members have partnered with Emmanuwheel.
About the Mungo Homes Foundation
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.
Week of Service is a company-wide initiative across all nine Markets where Mungo builds. In total, 1,023.50 volunteer hours were clocked throughout the week. Local organizations were nominated by local Mungo Team Members and selected by each local Mungo Homes Foundation Board of Advisors based on qualifying criteria.
Charitable organizations may be considered by invitation only.
