WACKER POLYSILICON PARTNERS WITH HABITAT FOR HUMANITY OF CLEVELAND TO BUILD A HOME

WACKER POLYSILICON North America presented a check to Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland in support of the completion of a Women Build home. The home is being built in partnership with the White family.

Marvin and Shiloh White, and their three-year-old son, currently live with family and share one bedroom. They are hardworking and want to be able to provide a safe home for their family and future children.

“Having our own home means to have stability for our family and a place for Kainaan and our future children to grow up,” said Shiloh. “Even though the sweat equity hours are the hardest part of the process, it is WORTH IT. Having a home means everything to us.”

WACKER POLYSILICON North America is a global leader in the production of hyperpure polycrystalline silicon. Polysilicon is the key material in the solar and semiconductor industries. WACKER POLYSILICON North America also partnered with Habitat of Cleveland in 2017 to purchase a ReStore truck.

“Habitat for Humanity works in many ways to support families in this community who are in need of a place to call home,” said Mary Beth Hudson, Vice President and site manager of WACKER POLYSILICON North America. “We are proud to support the great work they do in Bradley County, and look forward to future opportunities to grow our partnership.”

Partnering with Habitat of Cleveland is easy. There are many different opportunities including volunteering, becoming a monthly donor or joining a committee. There is room for everyone. 

"It takes time, talent and funding to build a home," said Tammy Johnson, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland. "Some provide time, some talent and others donate funds to help build. Our local Wacker Polysilicon plant has provided support by helping fund a Habitat home which improves our great community. Their generous gift is going to directly help Marvin and Shiloh White finish building their home. Our gratitude runs deep, but it doesn't compare to the lasting change it will bring to the White family."
