The Partners Group employees* spent the afternoon building and assembling houses for families struggling with poverty.

As part of The Partners Group holiday volunteering program, every employee is given a day off to spend time volunteering for their non-profit of choice. The group above chose to pick up some hammers and help Habitat for Humanity. They spent the afternoon working on multiple projects, such as: building a fence for one of the existing homes, putting up walls on two of the new construction sites, and framing windows on a new construction site.
