Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady Partners with Habitat for Humanity of Schenectady County During National Women Build Week 2019

Schenectady, NY (March 11, 2019) – Rivers Casino & Resort team members joined Habitat for Humanity of Schenectady County for National Women Build Week for a company build-day on Saturday, March 9th. Rivers Casino team members worked side-by-side with the future Habitat homeowner along with other habitat volunteers.

“Rivers Casino understands what it means to be a good neighbor and is always doing what they can to support vital housing initiatives for our community,” said Madelyn Thorne, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Schenectady County. “We appreciate all the volunteers for committing to help build a home for a local mother of two children. With their help, she and her family will soon have a safe new home to call their own.”

Since 1991, Women Build volunteers from all walks of life have come together to build stronger, safer communities for women with children affected by poor living conditions. Habitat Women Build events provide the opportunity for women volunteers to take a proactive step in helping their local communities. This year’s National Women Build Week ran from March 2 – March 9, 2019.

“Rivers Casino is extremely proud to support Habitat for Humanity’s mission to help provide healthy and affordable housing for people in our community,” said Rivers Casino & Resort Vice President of Human Resources, Kate McMahon. “Habitat for Humanity truly changes lives for the better and partnering with them during National Women Build Week, along with other builds throughout the year, is incredibly gratifying for all of us at Rivers.”
