Vehicle Service Group (VSG), parent company of Rotary Lift, Chief Automotive Technologies, Forward Lift and other vehicle repair equipment brands, announced that it is partnering with Habitat for Humanity Jefferson County on a 2015 sponsorship program. The sponsorship includes a monetary donation plus over 200 hours of direct labor provided by VSG employees to Habitat’s current family build project.

“VSG is committed to our local community of Madison and Jefferson County. There’s no better way for us to show this commitment than to partner with a terrific organization like Habitat for Humanity,” said Matt Webster, VSG vice president and general manager of the Americas. “Our employees are a dedicated and talented group of people who are excited about the prospect of helping a local family reach their dream of home ownership. When the opportunity arose for VSG to pledge its support to the Habitat program, it wasn’t a question of if, but a matter of when. I am also very proud of our employees who, through a wellness campaign involving financial matching from the company, increased their own physical activity; walking more than 14,000 miles to determine our total financial commitment to Habitat.”

Charlie Perkins, Jason Bell and Anne Brewster were part of a VSG team that built floor decking and walls at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore before transporting them to the build site.

Amy Ray, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Jefferson County, commented, “Habitat for Humanity of Jefferson County is excited and grateful to partner with VSG to continue to eradicate sub-standard housing in our community.  Their generous financial gift and the contribution of working hours by their employees will have a major impact during our 2015 building season.”

Future homeowner AJ Droddy adds, “I am really amazed by, and grateful for, the number of people from VSG willing to give of their time and talents for this Habitat for Humanity project for our home. Thank you.”

The Droddy project is the renovation of an 1860s shotgun house in Madison’s downtown historic district.
