The national home remodeler hosts largest employee volunteer initiative as part of its sixth annual Cultural Diversity & Inclusion Summit

CHESTER, PA — October 3, 2023 — Power Home Remodeling (“Power”), the nation’s leading exterior home remodeler, and the Fortune #13 Best Company to Work For hosted their largest employee volunteer initiative to date over the weekend to help improve Chicago neighborhoods and positively impact community members.

In order to create the most positive impact, Power partnered with Chicago Cares —  the city’s premier volunteer organization, connecting individuals and organizations with volunteer projects that address the city’s most pressing needs. 

“As a service business, Power believes our impact shouldn’t be confined to company walls or the homes’ of our customers — the work we do in our communities is an equally important part of our mission. Joining forces with an experienced and thoughtful partner like Chicago Cares allowed us to scale our impact, providing a more fulfilling experience for our employees, and creating more meaningful change in the city.”

Power’s National Director of Cultural Diversity & Inclusion, Olumidé Cole

Over 300 Power employees from across the country gathered in the South and West Sides of Chicago, participating in a variety of volunteer projects that contributed towards economic development, urban revitalization, social and workforce integration services, urban conservation, and more. Their impact included: 

“We’re grateful for organizations like Power that share similar values to our own. Their commitment to fostering connection and taking action — no matter how small — aligns closely with the approach we take in redefining volunteerism. It’s not about the result of any one project, it’s about the continuation of those small acts that support sustainable change in our communities.”

CEO of Chicago Cares, Rosie Drumgoole

Power’s city-wide volunteer project was part of the company’s sixth annual Cultural Diversity & Inclusion Summit — a three-day event that gathers employees from across the country to share knowledge and experiences to ultimately create more inclusivity, equity, and impact not only within the business, but in their communities as well.

Recognized by PEOPLE Magazine as one of the 2023 Companies That Care®, Power not only offers fulfilling career opportunities, but an environment that’s fostering meaningful change in the world.
