Small Group, Big Heart

On a sunny afternoon, a team of twenty First American Financial Corporation and CoreLogic employees spent a day building in Fullerton as part of their national day of service.

The team grabbed their tools and began work on five homes, the last group of homes to be built in this development.

One of the future homeowners, Mr. Chavez, was on site and talked to the volunteers about the development. "Habitat came to this neighborhood and started building beautiful homes," said Mr. Chavez. "You can see how the street has changed for good."

Andrea Amrein (in blue), Title Coordinator, First American Financial Corporation, took a break from resolving title issues at the office to work on siding. "I live down the street and it feels good to give back to the community. I can pass by and say I helped build this."

As always, we had one of our AmeriCorps on site to help guide the volunteers. Dan Hines, originally from Pennsylvania, was on site and worked alongside the volunteers. "This is a great group of volunteers," said Dan. "They were full of energy and enthusiasm."

Thank you to the volunteers who came out to build. I invite all of you to trade in your briefcase for a hammer this summer. You won't regret it.
