Advanced Business Equipment (ABE), a second generation provider of business equipment, IT technology and business solutions in Asheville and the Upstate, recently partnered with Habitat for Humanity to build a home in Arden, NC. The company contributed with a Blueprint sponsorship towards the build, and also saw nine members of the ABE sales team participate in the build.
“Assisting neighbors in need is a tradition of the Asheville community,” said Kevin Jackson, CEO and president of ABE. “Asheville Area Habitat has long been a customer of ours, and we have always admired the work they do in helping families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. It made perfect sense to collaborate, and we embraced this opportunity to work with them.”
Habitat homeowners work alongside volunteers to help build their own homes, and pay an affordable mortgage. Whether through volunteering, financial support, or supporting initiatives for affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves.
“The Asheville community is blessed with a network of caring, collaborative business partners, and Advanced Business Equipment is a local leader in investing back into the community,” said Development Director, Kit Rains. “By giving the time and resources to their employees to volunteer as a Blueprint Sponsor on an Asheville Habitat for Humanity site, Advanced Business Equipment is providing a permanent solution to a local family’s need for affordable housing. Thank you, Advanced Business Equipment for your support; we appreciate your partnership!”
As a second generation, family-owned business, ABE has a strong commitment to giving back to the community that has helped it grow since its inception in 1981. ABE believes strong, resilient communities lead to a more sustainable economy, which in turn leads to a better quality of life for those who live there. ABE believes firmly in helping to perpetuate this cycle of good.
