#FridayGiving: Helping a Milwaukee family build their dream home

On a warm summer day in Milwaukee, volunteers from We Energies strapped on tool belts, helmets and masks and went to work building a house for Habitat for Humanity.

We Energies President Tom Metcalfe stopped by to thank the volunteers and help out with the build.

“We talk about heroes in the community, and I think We Energies has really stepped up here. We’re not only challenged by storms this time of year and the COVID-19 pandemic, but we’re still finding time to put our hearts and soul into some of these important projects,” Metcalfe said.

Over the course of two days, volunteers climbed ladders, hammered nails and sawed wood. Their efforts will help a family build a safe, affordable home.


“I could not be prouder of the association we have with Habitat for Humanity,” Metcalfe said. “It goes back 25 years we’ve been supporting this organization, not only with funding, but with volunteers who come out here – giving up their time - to work on these important projects.”


Since the early 1980s, We Energies has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in communities across the state.
