About 250 employees and their families, friends and business partners donated more than 2,000 hours of labor during the 12-week Oldcastle Habitat for Humanity build in Salt Lake City.

Volunteers from Staker Parson were able to work alongside representatives of other Oldcastle product groups, including employees of Amcor, Allied Building Products, Oldcastle Precast and Merchant Metals.

Construction began April 6 and wrapped up June 29 on the home for Meseret Demeke, 43, and her sons, Sami, 16, and Isaac, 7. Demeke, a refugee from Ethiopia who became a U.S. citizen in December 2011, is a pediatric surgery technician at Primary Children’s Medical Center.

The home also featured many donated Oldcastle products, including the signature Belgard entrance walkway, blocks and mortar, pavers, roofing materials, mulch and fencing.
To date, Oldcastle has built four Habitat for Humanity homes; the others are in Atlanta and Paterson, N.J.
