Initiative is Part of Verifi’s Ongoing Effort to Give Back to its Community
LOS ANGELES, CA–(June 16, 2015) – Verifi, Inc., the leading provider of payment and risk management solutions for card-not-present merchants, recently partnered with the Los Angeles and Las Vegas Chapters of Habitat for Humanity to build community housing for families in Lynwood, CA and Las Vegas, NV.
The Verifi team assisted with a majority of the interior needs, as the foundation to the home was already completed. These projects included installing wood flooring, siding, door knobs, hand rails and appliances. The team spent 1 day in Las Vegas and 3 days on the Los Angeles project.
“The Verifi family believes in giving back to the community so we encourage our employees to participate in a charity activity every quarter, and Habitat for Humanity has become a staple group we support yearly,” said Matthew Katz, CEO, Verifi, Inc. “It’s such a rewarding and humbling experience to know that something you are building with your hands is helping a local family in need and the Verifi family is honored to be a part of this initiative. In fact, the Verifi team was fortunate enough to meet one of the family members who emigrated here from China two years ago and will benefit from one of the homes we helped build, which put the entire initiative in perspective.”
Each person who applies for a Habitat for Humanity Home needs to be below the poverty level to qualify. A majority of the families who meet the criteria work two to three jobs a day. Most of the families moving into the homes must work up to 600 hours on the site, which qualifies them to receive an interest-free mortgage.
Verifi is proud of our team of volunteers and looks forward to pledging more time and effort towards charities in our neighboring communities.
