Rolling Meadows, IL - Prior to the start of the Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI) Spring Conference, members and staff volunteered for a day of service at the Habitat for Humanity of Sonoma County's ReStore retail outlet. The PMI team assisted with pricing products, moving displays and cleaning merchandise, while learning about the mission of Habitat for Humanity in Sonoma County.

The volunteer group included;
PMI Technical Director Len Swatkowski and his wife Betty,
PMI Board Member C.J. Lagan, senior manager, compliance engineering for American Standard Brands and his wife Trudy;
Debbie Drury, director of brand communications for American Standard Brands;
Kris Alderson, senior marketing manager and Dale Gallmann, manager, corporate codes compliance, both from Bradley Corporation.

The volunteers received on-site guidance and supervision from Thomas Gonzalez, the ReStore store manager. In addition to putting together the build day event, PMI also will make a financial donation to Habitat for Humanity of Sonoma County to help support their vision for affordable housing.

A group of Sonoma County residents who wanted to end poverty housing formed the affiliate in 1984. As an all-volunteer organization with limited resources, the affiliate focused on rehabilitating existing housing for low-income households. The proceeds from the ReStore support the mission of Habitat for Humanity of Sonoma County.
