Local Navient employees committed to focus their philanthropic giving to Muncie Habitat for Humanity for 2016. Last December, Muncie Habitat for Humanity Board and Staff Members were presented with a check for $48,252.38. This check represents the commitment made by Navient employees.
In honor of the philanthropic commitment of Navient employees nationwide, the company offers up to four hours of paid leave time per month to empower employees to volunteer for a Navient – supported program in their community.
Throughout 2016, Navient employees have already volunteered by rehabilitating homes, preparing donated products for sale at the ReStore, assisting customers shopping at the ReStore, and assembling the Habitat annual report.
Later this year, volunteers will complete the majority of a home rehabilitation which will be sponsored by Navient. In addition, wall panels for a new construction project will be assembled by employees in the Navient parking lot, and a team of women will participate during Women Build in the fall.
Daniel Vipperman, Vice President of Navient, says “Partnering with Habitat locally gives our staff the opportunity to engage philanthropically in a meaningful, hands-on way that is relational and not just transactional.”
