Wills Group employee volunteers work alongside more than 100 Navy volunteers and Anne Arundel County residents as part of “Make a Difference Day”

The Wills Group, a family-owned company headquartered in La Plata, Md., partnered with Rebuilding Together on Saturday, October 20, to support a day of home and neighborhood repairs in Anne Arundel County. Wills Group employees volunteered their time to help improve several homes in Severn, Md., along with neighborhood cleanup and modifications around the community.

The neighborhood improvement day is part of the Wills Group’s national partnership with Rebuilding Together announced earlier this year. The Wills Group donated $100,000 to Rebuilding Together and committed to supporting a series of employee volunteer events to further their community engagement efforts to ensure safe and healthy homes and communities across the state of Maryland.

“At the Wills Group, we know how important it is for a family to be able to count on a home that is safe and comfortable,” said Lock Wills, Chairman, CEO and President of the Wills Group. “Our partnership with Rebuilding Together helps the Wills Group expand this commitment, and I’m thrilled to see our Wills Group team take the time to roll up their sleeves and help these deserving families and communities.”

The Wills Group employees were joined by more than 100 Navy volunteers and local residents to provide home and neighborhood repairs as part of the joint service “Make a Difference Day,” a national day of volunteering celebrated annually to promote community service. Volunteers worked together to address repairs throughout Anne Arundel County, which included replacing doors, installing park benches, and repairing buckling stairs in several homes.

Rebuilding Together is the leading national nonprofit organization that provides critical home repairs to individuals in need at no cost to them, with a focus on rebuilding communities throughout the country.

“We are thankful for the Wills Group and its employees’ commitment to our neighbors in need,” said Caroline Blakely, President and CEO of Rebuilding Together. “With their continued support we can have a deep and lasting impact on the lives of many people and work together to strengthen our communities.”
