Darius Rucker is partnering with Ply Gem, a leading manufacturer of building products, as the 2017 ambassador for its "Home for Good Project" to help build hundreds of homes across the United States with Habitat for Humanity. The Ply Gem "Home for Good Project" is a multi-year initiative that includes a donation of more than $1 million worth of exterior building products and funds for Habitat for Humanity to use to help families throughout the nation build homes. The company will support the project with advertising and social media initiatives to encourage its associates, the building industry — including distributors, builders and remodelers — as well as consumers to support its effort to bring awareness of the need for affordable housing in communities across the country.
Darius said, “From an early age, my mother always encouraged us to give back. Whether it was mowing a neighbor's yard or supporting a friend, I think it's important to give back any time and chance you can. For me, the opportunity to partner with Ply Gem and its 'Home for Good Project' to help so many people at a national level–is incredible. I am really looking forward to what we can do together in 2017.”
Through its first year of the "Home for Good Project," Ply Gem has already donated enough building materials – including windows and siding – to help build 300 homes.
