One of the core values of Racanelli Construction Co. is giving back to the communities where we live and work. It is a part of our company’s DNA going back to our founding and continues to this day with our Principals, who serve on nonprofit boards and are actively involved in many charitable events. On June 21st, fourteen Racanelli employees volunteered in a project with Habitat for Humanity of Long Island. It was RCC’s first volunteer event since the launch of our Spirit Squad in January of this year. The event occurred in Mastic Beach, with Team RCC spending the day doing demo work and renovating a home for a deserving family.
Habitat for Humanity of Long Island was founded in 1987 and had a humble beginning in a garage in Rocky Point. The first home was built for a single mother in Riverhead. In the decades since, the nonprofit has expanded its reach and built hundreds of homes by forging strong relationships with corporations like RCC, municipalities, and private groups. Habitat of Long Island is an independent affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, which was founded in 1976 by Linda and Millard Fuller, who upheld the principles of “fellowship, charity, and a firm belief that everyone deserves a decent place to live.” Habitat for Humanity International empowers people of all backgrounds and cultures to volunteer to build homes for needy families.
Thank you to our volunteers for their hard work and service to those in need.
