Does Your Team Want to Build?

Local businesses state that the best way for their teams to bond is to volunteer with Fox Valley Habitat. A perfect example of this is TD Ameritrade. Their time and dedication to the Fox Valley affiliate has not only highly benefitted our organization, but their office has been affected greatly as well. A TD Ameritrade employee quotes, "It is so great to see these connections and then watch the follow up of that in the office." If your team wants to help build, contact Julie Clark at or (630) 206-5034.
