Associated Bank’s Women’s Network (AWN) of Central Wisconsin, along with a few other Associated Bank colleagues, recently assisted at a Habitat for Humanity build in Stevens Point.

The AWN is focused on fostering an environment and promoting collaboration of women at Associated by highlighting elements of personal development, professional advancement, and overarching wellbeing. The team of women often volunteers together within the community to support local non-profit organizations.

Renee Carlson, default services manager at Associated Bank, felt good to be part of a project that provides a home to a family in need. “The way that the construction crew, Associated Bank and the family all worked together to build this house was amazing,” Carlson said.

The team acquired new construction skills as they worked diligently on the house. Some AWN members worked on framing, while others worked on installing a second story deck and the subfloor for the house. Each colleague expressed that volunteering for Habitat was well worth the time and effort.

Max Glass, customer care specialist at Associated Bank, said “Habitat builds offer a good change of pace from my normal work duties. It’s also great to collaborate and volunteer with other colleagues and learn what they do for the bank.”

“Volunteering for Habitat can make a great difference in your community,” said Kathy Dodge, director of residential systems and risk management at Associated Bank. “AWN serves as a great platform to bring together colleagues who share the same passion for volunteering to support local community needs, build relationships with local charities, and participate in projects that provide personal and professional growth.”
