Dickies Canada Volunteers To Help In The Building Of Habitat Homes
In August 2012, the staff in Canada put our work apparel to the test, helping out with a Habitat for Humanity build in Ontario.
The project is currently building homes for four families in 2012 and will be building another additional four homes in the same location next year. The WDC team was not sure what to expect heading in, but by the end of the day, everyone had nothing but great things to say about how they were able to contribute and the jobs they were able to perform that they never imagined they would do. Some of the jobs included installing siding and in-floor heating, roughing in a bathroom and building a front porch.
It was hot, but we made it through the day and as expected our apparel did too!

Dickies was happy to supply a full complement of our guaranteed quality work wear to the hard working group in May 2010.
