Every year, downtown Ripon, CA holds a Trick-or-Treat day where children venture business to business, collect candy, and show off fabulous costumes. This year, Ripon did it again! From adorable bumble bees to Edward Scissorhands, the trick-or-treaters were well dressed! Here are some photos of our team dressed up and the Trick-or-Treaters that came by the DuctTesters Headquarters in Ripon. Also, we have a few trick-or-treating tips for you: Be sure to plan a route in advance, travel in groups, only visit well-lit homes, and wear reflective clothes or bring flashlights so drivers see you.
On Saturday, October 7th, Homes 4 Families (formerly Habitat for Humanity SFV / SCV) hosted an “OVER THE EDGE FOR VETERANS” fundraiser event. DuctTesters was a proud sponsor and sent two of their clients, Michael Hall from RSI Communities and Mark Mandernacht from Montage Development, rappelling down 25-stories in support of the event. The Los Angeles Police Department’s SWAT Team rappelled first. You will see a photo below of LA’s SWAT Team with Judi Maclean from Homes 4 Familes. All the proceeds from this event go directly towards the construction of new homes and social services for low-income Veterans and their families.
“To date, Homes 4 Families has partnered with non-profits, government entities, and corporations to bring the outcome-proven Enriched Neighborhood® model to communities. Primarily with Habitat for Humanity San Fernando/Santa Clarita Valleys (SF/SCV) as builder, we have built over 144 homes in 5 Enriched Neighborhoods® in Northern Los Angeles County, are under construction on 80 homes for low-income veteran families, and are working with Habitat for Humanity Riverside to build 38 additional homes for low-income veterans.” – Homes 4 Families
