Kent Corporation Employees Help Build Habitat for Humanity House

Muscatine, Iowa – A new Habitat for Humanity house currently underway received much needed help from Kent Corporation employees donating their time and abilities. Habitat for Humanity is building their eleventh home in the Muscatine area with the latest project at 415 E. Jackson, Wilton, Iowa.   Kent Corporation decided to proactively support this project, by encouraging employees to dedicate one day in November to helping on the home building project. This project is part of Kent Corporation’s ongoing commitment to the safety and well-being of the Muscatine community.

Two groups of employees from Kent Corporation and its subsidiaries volunteered to help with roofing and siding at the Habitat for Humanity house.
