World-leading building products company USG Boral is partnering with Habitat for Humanity in Victoria to help build homes for families in need.

Habitat for Humanity builds homes for families in need across Australia and the world, relying on generous donations from companies and individuals. The beneficiary families work with the charity on the home building project, contributing sweat equity labour and what they can afford financially.

In addition to Boral’s new community partnership with Habitat for Humanity (Australia), USG Boral has also donated its new lightweight USG Boral Sheetrock Brand plasterboard to Habitat for Humanity’s Crib Point housing project on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, enabling three homes to be built more quickly for families living in housing stress.

USG Boral Senior Vice President Asia Pacific and Executive General Manager Australia, Tony Charnock said they were pleased to contribute their brand new Sheetrock Brand plasterboard to the worthy housing project at Crib Point, and help local families and communities.

According to Habitat for Humanity Executive Director, Philip Curtis, USG Boral’s support means their homes can be built more efficiently and sustainably and at a lower cost to help provide families in need with great hope for their future.

Thanks to Habitat for Humanity and its supporters, including USG Boral, many families will soon move into their very own home at Crib Point. Krystal and Evan Johnson, along with their three small children, have been living with Krystal’s parents as they couldn’t afford to rent a home.

The Johnson family is planning to move into their new home before Christmas, thanks to the assistance from USG Boral.
