Community Week:

Volunteers from MetLife Foundation work at Charlie Chaplin

Habitat for Humanity GB Homes will host MetLife volunteers during the leading insurance company’s Community Week. The initiative has been funded by MetLife Foundation, the philanthropic arm of MetLife. MetLife Foundation has a long tradition of supporting initiatives that engage MetLife volunteers in activities that improve quality of life and increase opportunities for the undeserved.

The project that MetLife volunteers will be supporting is our Charlie Chaplin Adventure Playground Project. The playground provides a fun, safe space for inclusive play for children with a range of disabilities, as well as their siblings.

As part of its Community Week, which began in mid-May, MetLife will engage roughly 200 employees in eight countries to help Habitat for Humanity build or renovate buildings and undertake non-housing projects in disadvantaged areas across EMEA.
