Habitat for Humanity Greater Boston
Some members of our team have now been supporting the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity for over 15 years and counting. Habitat for Humanity is an important charitable organization to Helge whom we have donated not only the money but also supported them through team-build days where we have worked on the job sites to help build homes for those less fortunate.

Helge has played an active role in the Haitian Community dating back to 2008. Helge principals created the largest elderly centers, in Mattapan Sant Belvi and Kay Pam, that quickly became the main locations hosting 90% of all Haitian events ranging from political rallies to dinners and fundraisers.
Following the earthquake in Haiti, Helge stepped in as one of the largest corporate donors in the state, totaling over $100,000 in donations, services and supplies for those in Haiti who lost everything.
