Meet Jesus G.
He’s a Safelite AutoGlass store manager in Visalia. He recently led the Bakersfield market in a fundraiser for the local Habitat for Humanity supporting Tulare and Kings County in central California.
The team sold more than 100 tickets to a BBQ in the Habitat for Humanity Store parking lot. Safelite provided all the food and drinks as well as cooking and serving the guests.
“Habitat for Humanity is important to me because it’s an opportunity for people to own a house no matter their financial circumstance,” Jesus shared.
Between ticket sales and a Safelite-funded match, they raised $1,000. And, with the additional foot traffic, the store more than doubled their average sales for the day.
“It’s a great feeling to be able to help others, seeing the smiles of other people, knowing you are making a difference,” added Jesus. “It also makes me grateful for what I have. I think everyone should volunteer to help others because you never know when you are going to need help and maybe a stranger would help you out!”
