Thrasher Helps to Restore Foundations for the Abide Network

Thursday, September 12th, 2013 by Thrasher

Over 35 employees from Thrasher and Supportworks partnered with the Abide Network to give back to the Omaha community. Together, by installing 30 wall anchors and 6 PowerBraces, we provided foundation stabilization for two homes and peace of mind for many, many years.

Abide is an inner-city, non-profit organization with a dream that Omaha, Nebraska, would have no inner city one day. Their mission of transforming the inner city, one neighborhood at a time, started over 20 years ago. Abide provides a holistic approach that focuses on developing healthy neighborhoods through four main areas: community building, family support programs, housing and partnerships. Since that time, Abide has purchased houses in North Omaha, spent hours rehabbing them, and has placed families into these homes who will bring light, hope and assistance to their community. These homes are transforming one neighborhood at a time.

Once the work was completed, Thrasher and Supportworks hosted a block party to honor and celebrate the Abide Network and their ongoing community efforts in the North Omaha community.

At Thrasher, one of our Core Values as a company is One community. We are glad for the opportunity to be serving the North Omaha community. We are firm believers that it is essential to give back the blessings that we as individuals have been given and be an advocate for our communities. Each year, our team looks for continued opportunities to give back to our local communities through volunteer hours, various projects and donations. We want to be enriching the lives of our employees, the community and the nation with the blessings we've been given. Teaming with the Abide network was the perfect way to live out this value.

We were honored to have the chance to live out this value with our team and share our blessings to the North Omaha community, and we know that this will be a partnership for years to come.
