GTE Helps Build Homes for Pittsburgh Families

On Friday June 15th, GTE went out of the office and into local neighborhoods along with Pittsburgh’s Open Hand Ministries.  In an effort to help low-income families become financially stable through homeownership, Open Hand Ministries rehabilitates vacant properties drawing upon donations, local contractors, and volunteer work.

GTE provided a long day of hauling, digging, demolition, and repurposing of materials—the difficult yet rewarding effort needed to jump start the wellbeing of many of these families.  With a bit of sweat and a lot of bonding, GTE is proud to make a lasting difference in its community while fostering teamwork among its ranks.

Not only did we have a great time, but we got a chance to learn new construction techniques and home rebuilding strategies, such as when to repurpose a chimney to maximize both space and heating efficiency.  Take a look at some of our pictures from Friday and see the GTE team at work!
