On September 10th, 2016, CoreSpace President and team collaborated with Hilti’s CEO, Cary Evert and team, and participated in their “A Brush with Kindness” day.
Hilti, in partnership with Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity, set out to transform 50 homes in southeast Dallas’ historic Joppa neighborhood and the CoreSpace team was eager to lend a helping hand to this community effort. Even our Owner and President, Liana Dunlap and our CEO, Jeremy Bigham, got their hands dirty (very dirty) working on bringing back to life the community’s organic food garden.
Joppa is a historic community that was originally settled by freed men. The neighborhood is undergoing a successful revitalization that includes the support of community leaders and partners. Hilti’s A Brush with Kindness event provided critical repairs and maintenance to homes for families who would otherwise not had access to the resources or possess the ability to maintain the integrity and safety of their homes. Over 400 volunteers and staff participated!
Volunteers worked side by side with homeowners to tackle projects like:
- Exterior painting
- Landscaping and yard clean-up
- Minor household repairs
- Accessibility ramp builds
- Gutter repair
- Fence repair
- Community garden repair
