Rochester, N.Y.-based VP Supply participated in a dedication ceremony in early October as Flower City Habitat for Humanity welcomed the Seymore family to their new home in Rochester.
VP Supply served as sponsor for the home rehabilitation project. The ceremony was attended by VP Supply leadership and staff representatives of Flower City Habitat for Humanity, the Seymore family and many volunteers who worked on the home.
Collaboration with Flower City Habitat for Humanity is one way VP Supply has been celebrating its 50th year in business supplying plumbing, HVAC, kitchen, bath and renewable energy products to contractors and homeowners.
“We wanted to do something in honor of our founders, Marv Miller and Elliot Curwin, during our 50th anniversary,” VP Supply President Gary Curwin said. “Louis (Curwin, VP Supply secretary/treasurer) became aware of the home rehabilitation, which lined up perfectly with his vision to do something oriented around family and community. Plus, VP Supply first was established just down the road from the Seymore’s new home so it felt right to help this deserving family and neighborhood. We started this project as a way to give back to the community. But through this great experience, our employees believe we received more than we gave.”
