Employees of Trico Lift, Millville, N.J., and their families, recently traveled to Washington, D.C., to join volunteers of The Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project. The Trico group attended a special celebratory luncheon for the event on October 4, where former President Carter and Mrs. Carter were guests of honor.
The internationally recognized project, sponsored by Habitat for Humanity, attracts volunteers from around the world. Trico Lift became a tool sponsor of the Habitat for Humanity annual project earlier this year.
For the project, the company also donated use of an industrial forklift at a Washington, D.C. warehouse for the handling of building materials. "We are very grateful to Trico Lift for their donation of a forklift to be used in our new warehouse space and we're glad they could come on board for the Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project this year,” said Richard Algra, director of development for Habitat for Humanity of Washington, D.C.
Trico Lift president and CEO Ken Pustizzi joined New Jersey employees Lorrie Adler, John Bennett, Ken Pustizzi, Jr. and Donna Frie, along with Matt Sentmen of York Haven, Pa., as well as their family members, to work on the Carter Project. "One of our company's five goals is to be community-minded," said Pustizzi. "Our participation at the national and local levels in Habitat for Humanity building projects is something that just makes sense."
