Cisco Systems employees from North and South America have traveled to Georgia to help build homes with two families as part of a new national partnership with Habitat for Humanity. Cisco provided funding and volunteers from its Americas sales team helped construct the houses.
“We’re driven every day to enable our customers through technology – but that passion to serve doesn’t stop when the work day ends,” said Jeff Sharritts, senior vice president and head of Cisco’s Americas Sales organization. “Our team thrives on opportunities like this one to be the light and make an impact in our communities, so it is an absolute privilege to be able to partner with Habitat for Humanity and build these homes.”
More than 300 Cisco employees volunteered in Forsyth County alongside the families. Over the course of construction, the volunteers participated in framing, hanging drywall, installing siding, painting and doing landscape work.
“We are grateful to partner with Cisco on a national level,” said Julie Laird Davis, vice president of Corporate and Foundation Relations for Habitat for Humanity International. “The generous investment of Cisco’s resources will have a lasting effect with this family and the community.”
