Harts Services, a Tacoma-based plumbing company, helped build a Habitat for Humanity project on Saturday, July 21. Harts Services employees built a playground for community children to play on in the Tillicum neighborhood. The crew of plumbers, office workers, underground experts and ownerships worked together to dig and set a foundation, pour cement for supports and build the stone surround.
The crew worked from 8:45 a.m. until 4 p.m. on the project overseen by the Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity Chapter. Habitat for Humanity is building several homes in the community, and Harts Services spent the day building a playground for the children who will occupy the neighborhoods’ homes.
“This was really special to our team because we got to use our expertise to help give back to the community,” Harts Services co-owner Rich Hart said. “It was great to get our crew together to hopefully help some people make a better life for themselves.”
