PRESS RELEASE

Rebuilding Together® Greater Harrisburg (non-profit organization) and Masonite will partner together on
Friday, November 18, 2022 to work on a disabled senior citizen’s home:
Feona Laing
473 Main Street
Steelton, PA 17113

Rebuilding Together is about community and ensuring our low-income homeowners, the elderly, disabled, families with children and veterans of war live in a safe and healthy environment and remain independent—“age in place”. Repairs and modifications are at no cost to the homeowner.

Masonite, a leading global designer, manufacturer, marketer and distributor of interior and exterior doors and door systems, is providing funding for the project through the company’s We Help People Walk Through Walls Community Grant Program. Launched in the fall of 2021 the program invites employees to submit funding requests for organizations and causes they care most about in the communities where they live and work. To date, the program has awarded $159,000 in funding to 43 community causes and organizations that assist with job skills training, substance abuse recovery, mentoring programs, and much more.

“Masonite is proud to support Rebuilding Together’s efforts to revitalize the Steelton community,” said David Perkins, Vice President, Masonite. “We are also honored for our BWI Distribution team to participate in repairing Ms. Laing’s home, to make it safer and more comfortable for her.”

Seventeen (17) employees from BWI Distribution in Mechanicsburg will be working on Feona’s home. RTGH House Captain, Curtis Love will be leading the group of volunteers.
