The Centuria team working at the National Weather Service Radar Operations Center as well as employees from corporate headquarters took time out of their Saturday to participate in the Rebuilding Together program in Central Oklahoma.
Rebuilding Together is the nation’s leading nonprofit organization providing critical home repairs, modifications and improvements for America’s low-income homeowners. Volunteers rebuild the homes and lives of the nation’s most vulnerable homeowners and families at no cost.
The team in Oklahoma has been an active participant in the program for many years and have taken on projects that ranged from painting houses to rebuilding porches and have even re-roofed a house. This year, they helped a family make numerous repairs to their house that included replacing an entry door, plumbing and electrical fixes as well as installing a fence and repairing broken window panes.
“We get a great sense of accomplishment and pride after taking just a couple hours to make improvements that will so dramatically impact a family’s everyday life,” commented Bill Deringer, NEXRAD Program Manager. “The teamwork from our work week carries over into these projects and gives us a way to interact in a completely different environment.”
Participants included Art Bauer, Brandy Bauer, Lindsay Cannon, Dustin Crank, Bill Deringer, Scott Ganson, Ray Gonzalez (government customer), Pauline Healy, Dan Hoffman (government customer), Justin Key, Tommy McGehee, Chuck Parish, and Don Sander.
