Rhodes USA Donates Steel Framing to This Year’s Habitat for Humanity Blitz Build
Lubbock, TX, July 16, 2021 – Rhodes USA will provide steel framing three homes in the 2021 Blitz Build, organized by Lubbock Habitat for Humanity, with steel framing for one home being an in-kind donation.
The 2021 Blitz Build will take place September 6th through September 18th with the goal of constructing three homes in 13 days. The three homes will be constructed by volunteers from across the community including students from Lubbock universities, parishioners from local congregations, and West Texas businesses.
“As a business in the Lubbock area, our mission is to promote positive change in the community,” Scott Turner, general manager and sales director of Rhodes USA, said. “We are excited to provide the steel framing for all three homes in this year’s Blitz Build, with one home’s framing being donated by our organization.”
Typically constructed of lumber, this year’s homes are being built with steel framing for many reasons.
“With lumber prices constantly changing, we felt that steel framing was a more cost-effective choice for this year’s Blitz Build,” Christy Reeves, executive director of Lubbock Habitat for Humanity, said. “We are so grateful for Rhodes USA and their donation of framing for one of our homes.”
The steel framing provided by Rhodes USA will also make the homes more durable while decreasing the time and technical skills necessary for constructing the homes.
