Summit Helps Habitat for Humanity

Summit’s Director of Training & Development Liz Clarke volunteers at a Habitat for Humanity construction site

Summit values our connections to the surrounding community. It’s for this reason that we’re now proud to offer a Volunteer Time-Off (VTO) policy for all full-time employees.

The VTO policy allows eligible employees to volunteer up to 8 paid hours per calendar year. The purpose of this program is to strengthen our connection with the surrounding communities, as well as encourage Summit employees to engage in meaningful work for those in need.

Human Resources Director of Training and Development Elizabeth Clarke, took this opportunity to volunteer in early August.  She worked with Habitat for Humanity, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to building affordable housing for families in need. Liz spent a full day assisting in the construction of a house for a family in Suffolk County, Long Island.

Discussing her time with the nonprofit organization, Liz said, “It was a rewarding experience to be a part of this, both as an individual and as a part of the greater community. I met new people in the area, and I even learned a few things about construction. I encourage all to give back to the community where they can!”

Summit applauds Liz for helping out in her community. At Summit, we are committed to helping and connecting with those around us, whether that’s raising money for cancer research or playing against young adults with disabilities and veterans in a sled hockey game. Being a part of the community is an important part of how we do business.
