ALPHARETTA, Ga.- InterDev, an Atlanta-area provider of information technology, security and geographic information systems (GIS) services, today announced it has been honored by Habitat for Humanity-North Central Georgia for its sponsorship and service in 2017 and 2018. To reinforce its continuing commitment to the organization, InterDev will again sponsor a home build in fall 2019.
As a sponsor, InterDev contributes $5,000 each year and sends out a team of employees to build homes for families in need. During their 2018 build, InterDev participated in the "First Nail" event and completed the framing of the Dilly family home.
"We're very appreciative of corporations like InterDev who partner and build homes for our local families," said Sabrina Kirkland, Director of Community Engagement of Home Repair for Habitat for Humanity-North Central Georgia. "We look forward to working with InterDev in 2019 to build another home for a hardworking family."
