Organized by Private Banker Jennifer Parks, the bankers joined Austinites from IBM, JPMorganChase, Bank of America, Catholic Churches of Austin and the UT Chapter of Habitat for Humanity to for exterior painting, adding corner trim and soffits, and porch and gable siding.

“Habitat for Humanity can change a family in just eight weeks; that’s about how long Habitat and it’s volunteers take to complete a home,” said Parks. “The families are impressive and we got to meet some of them. Over 54 days, Habitat takes green volunteers like our team, guides us and when we leave, something great has been built.”

This is the fourth week of construction on these two project homes—they are half way through the build. You can read more about the beneficiary families or view more pictures here.
