Some of our engineers recently raised a roof on their vacation day

Spearheaded by Manitoba Hydro’s Professional Engineers Association (MHPEA), a group of our engineers from around the corporation recently took a vacation day to join forces on a team build for Habitat for Humanity.

“MHPEA started a subcommittee to find opportunities for our members to get involved together in some good community activities,” said Vincent Ho, one of Manitoba Hydro’s electrical engineers.

“It was difficult finding volunteer opportunities during the pandemic,” said Vincent. “Habitat for Humanity was an outdoor event so that was a good option.”

Along with their volunteer time, the group raised $7,685 for building supplies and skilled labour.

“Not only did we achieve something positive, but it was also a fun opportunity for engineers from around Manitoba Hydro to meet and work on a meaningful project together,” said Vincent.

The team of Manitoba Hydro engineers ended up building more than just houses. They built community spirit, teamwork, and they had a hand in helping build a better life for some families who needed a hand.
