SIDNEY – Habitat for Humanity recently installed new garage and entry doors on a new build sponsored by Clopay Corp., North America’s largest residential and commercial garage door manufacturer with facilities in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Arizona.
Clopay announced earlier this year that it would provide $100,000 in funds for the Sidney home construction project, which began in September and will be completed in spring 2021.
“This project is a natural fit for us as a building products company to give back not only financially, but by donating our products as well,” said Clopay Corporation President Steve Lynch. “Our local communities have backed us for years by providing amazing employees and overall support. Since the entry door and the garage door were built in our Ohio manufacturing facilities in Russia and Troy, it gives our associates an opportunity to showcase their work and give back to their neighbors in a unique way.”
After committing to support Habitat for Humanity, the Clopay team was excited to learn that the worthy new homeowner is a member of their own Clopay family, Marie Strunk. She has worked at the Troy plant for three years.
Strunk applied to become a first-time homeowner through Habitat for Humanity in 2018. Since then, she has worked over 100 hours volunteering with the organization and completing the education classes required to qualify for her own house.
She will also put 400 hours of “sweat equity” into the home’s construction…
