Henry Companies Help Habitat for Humanity

Local oil company helps build home, donates $30,000
MIDLAND -- Habitat for Humanity has been working around the clock hammering out houses for those in need for years. But with a booming population, they're services may be needed now more than ever.

Making matters a little more difficult, according to Habitat executive director Alynda Best,  "We're seeing the cost of our houses increase some because supplies are costing more. In fact, we really have to get in line just to get concrete sometimes."
   
But this week, they got some much needed relief when the Henry Companies handed over a check for $30,000. Money that will help cover more than half the cost of one home. According to Henry Companies chairman Jim Henry, it's money well spent.

"To establish something permanent like this that's lasting that's help families for a long time means that the dollar we spend is worth it very much," said Henry.
   
But he and dozens of other Henry employees gave a lot more than just money. They were also happy to give three days worth of their time.

"It's just nice to be out here with our work family working as a team to know that we're providing something great for another family," said Blake Braun, Henry Resources drilling manager.
   
As for Habitat, they couldn't be more grateful for the helping hands. "It makes it..not a possibility ...a reality," stressed Best.
