Corporate Team Builds

By partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Lowell, you are able to transform a local family’s life and help improve a neighborhood.  Take a day out of the office and join us on a build site or in the ReStore for a team building day.  All sponsorships are valued and help Habitat Greater Lowell fulfill its mission of providing decent, energy efficient, affordable homes for local families in our communities. Habitat offers a Hand Up not a Hand Out and YOU TOO can offer a hand.

Are you ready to change the face of your community by using your time, treasures and talents?

NETSCOUT, Westford, MA

NETSCOUT is invested in the Merrimack Valley, particularly in Lowell. “What Habitat does is so directly  relevant to the good of the community. After a build, you can walk away at the end of the day with a sense of making a difference. This experience has been empowering and extremely rewarding for the entire NETSCOUT organization.”  –  Michael Szabados, Chief Operating Officer, NETSCOUT

Discussion started back in 2010 to begin working with NETSCOUT in Westford MA. The corporate culture was such that community involvement and giving back were clear priorities. Since then, multiple team building days and 2 employees have volunteered to serve on our board –  it’s been a beautiful and impactful partnership.

NETSCOUT has sponsored 4 houses since 2013 and has signed up to sponsor our 50th house in 2020. Teams have come out to 14 build sites, accounting for over 1700 hours with 139 employees participating, from the mail room to the COO!

NETSCOUT’s commitment starts at the top with their “Heart of Giving” campaign providing homes for the Berrio family (Juniper Hill, Westford), the Hebert family (Rock St, Lowell), the Bullard family (Willie St, Lowell) and the Nzula family (Rock St, Lowell). Whether raising walls or painting them—NETSCOUT is a WINNER!

There are many other companies, both large and small, that have chosen to partner with Habitat for Humanity. They come out for 1 day or 10 days!  Bring 5 people or 25!  We have plenty of work to do!  Come and get involved.

Salesforce, Burlington, MA

Salesforce volunteered for a day in 2016 and since that time their commitment and partnership has grown to 174 employees, volunteering over 2300 hours. 

Volunteering came in many forms from being on the build site swinging a hammer, to serving on the Habitat board, to creating a marketing campaign encouraging other companies to get involved. Just recently, they committed to sponsoring our 51st house in Concord in 2020.

“Salesforce is a community driven company. We’ve been on site more times than I can count and we love it!”
