JOHNSON CITY, N.Y. - Staff and family members of Meier Supply Co. teamed up in June to assist Broome County Habitat for Humanity with a home restoration project. The crews worked for two consecutive Saturdays, with a team of 11 the first week and eight the second. Warehouse staff, management, and family members all pitched in to do their part.

"It really felt good," Bernadette Meier, Meier supply design and development manager said of the effort. "Everyone I talked to said they'd like to do it again. At the end of the day, you may be dirty, tired, and sore, but you also know you were a part of something that will make a difference in another person's life."

The house on Lawndale Avenue in Endicott, N.Y. was gutted to the bare walls and will be completely refinished. The Meier Supply teams removed a brick chimney between the first floor and the roof; removed the furnace; ripped out lath, plaster, and nails; and removed all the debris that was created in the process.

Frank Meier Jr., president and CEO of Meier Supply Co., has long been a supporter of Habitat for Humanity, first through his involvement with the Heating, Airconditioning, and Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI), and now on a more local level. Meier recently completed his term as president of HARDI.

"HARDI has always been very supportive of Habitat for Humanity and has actually sent teams to a Jimmy Carter build. Last year, we got involved on a local level donating window air conditioners to the Broome County Chapter of Habitat and decided to put a team together," said Meier.
