Westy Self Storage in Wilton showed its support of Housatonic Habitat for Humanity by donating the use of its grand lobby to host the group’s 2013 Volunteer Recognition Dinner.

The granite-tiled lobby with a light-filled atrium allowed for a festive evening as the 45 volunteers from Housatonic Habitat for Humanity were recognized for their many hours of service.  Communities in the 16 towns they serve are enriched by caring and compassionate volunteers working to provide home ownership opportunities to qualified families with limited income.

Although Housatonic Habitat for Humanity has two full-time and two part-time employees, there are more than 140 core volunteers. They assist with construction, office work and help run the ReStore thrift-type home improvement outlet. Some also serve on committees and on the board of directors. Together, they will have built 27 homes in the greater Danbury area by early 2014.

“We are so grateful to Westy Self Storage for hosting our event,” said Fran Normann, affiliate director of the organization. “Without their generosity we would not have been able to acknowledge our volunteers with such a special evening. We are thankful for the team at Westy as their attention to detail and dedication helped make this event a huge success. Westy Self Storage has been a supporter of our mission for three years and is an important partner.”
