Xylem Volunteers Build Homes in Houston After Hurricane Harvey
Last year, Hurricane Harvey caused widespread devastation, forcing thousands of people out of damaged homes in Texas. In December, 25 Xylem employees volunteered with Houston Habitat for Humanity, rebuilding homes that had suffered from flooding and water damage in the wake of the hurricane. Between December and the end of April 2018, Xylem will have sent more than 100 volunteers to work with Houston Habitat for Humanity. This partnership between Habitat for Humanity and Xylem’s corporate citizenship program, Xylem Watermark, is the embodiment of Xylem’s culture of volunteerism and engagement. Xylem employees are committed to making a difference in their communities.
