DENVER, CO: Zunesis, an IT solution provider headquartered in Englewood, CO, has partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver since 2008. Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization that partners with hard-working families to provide affordable and safe housing. Through this long-term partnership, Zunesis and Habitat have been able to fund and build a total of seven – and counting – homes in the Denver community.
Habitat for Humanity makes an incredible difference in the lives of their partner families. As a non-profit, they rely heavily on the partnership of the surrounding community to provide both the necessary funds and volunteer hours to build their homes.
Zunesis is a regular financial sponsor, and even hosts their own annual gala, the Night of Miracles, to raise funds for Habitat. However, the Zunesis team believes strongly in going above and beyond, so they do not stop with a financial donation. Each year, the entire company joins the Habitat construction crews to put in physical labor to help build homes.
“Writing a company check is great. I’m glad we do it,” noted Zunesis Marketing Manager, Megan Shaffer. “However, it doesn’t feel personal because it’s the company’s money. Getting out there, swinging a hammer, and meeting our partner family – that makes it personal. That makes us each feel like we’re investing in our community together.”
To add to that, Zunesis CEO Steve Shaffer commented, “This is one of my favorite days of the year. We believe so strongly in what Habitat does that it doesn’t even seem like we’re the ones donating anything. It’s truly our honor to be able to partner with this organization.”
As stated in the Zunesis Company Core Values, they believe strongly in two things:
The annual build day with Habitat is a testament to these values, and each year, the company’s commitment to these values grows as the lives of both employees and home recipients are changed through partnership with Habitat for Humanity.
