Hill & Partners Inc., a full-service team of branded-environment specialists, proudly announces nine staff members, including company President Michael McMahon and his wife, Kimberley, recently assisted South Shore Habitat for Humanity with a home building project in Norwell, Mass.
The Hill & Partners crew performed a number of critical construction activities, including running electrical wire, vinyl siding application, inserting blockage in the kitchen and bathrooms and laying concrete foundation for front porch stairs. The Aug. 15 project marks the third Habitat for Humanity home-building project for which members of the Hill & Partners staff have volunteered their time and skills. Prior projects included a May 2010 home built in Needham for the Greater Boston Habitat for Humanity and an October 2010 Marshfield home built for South Shore Habitat for Humanity.
Hill & Partners, whose offices are located directly across the street from the South Shore Habitat for Humanity office, take seriously the Habitat for Humanity slogan, “Neighbors Helping Neighbors,” through various monetary donations and by purchasing a table and volunteering design services for the South Shore Habitat for Humanity’s annual gala.
“It gives us great pleasure and satisfaction to demonstrate our continued support of this vital organization,” said McMahon. “We like to think that our experience and skills in creating branded environments translates into our ability to make a difference and accomplish a multitude of tasks during Habitat home builds; but ultimately it is the end result of helping to create a home for a local family that means the most to us.”
The Weymouth-based non-profit organization, dedicated to building affordable homes in partnership with families in need, received an additional sum from Hill & Partners in 2011 resulting from two social marketing campaigns. The firm donated funds to South Shore Habitat for Humanity during its “Like us on Facebook” drive and a subsequent marketing campaign that showcased Hill & Partners’ move from Quincy to offices in Weymouth. The “We’re On the Move” campaign asked visitors to the Hill & Partners website to participate in an online game, resulting in a per-participant donation to South Shore Habitat for Humanity.

“It was an incredibly gratifying experience to be part of a Habitat for Humanity build and know that we’re helping to make a difference for a really great family in need,” said Danielle DeBenedictis, associate project manager, Hill & Partners. “I’m thankful to both South Shore Habitat and Hill & Partners for the opportunity to participate and I look forward to our continuing relationship with Habitat.”
