Habitat for Humanity Volunteer Day

In the spirit of giving back to our community, Williams Architects / Aquatics hosted our first DuPage Habitat for Humanity Volunteer Day.  Several Williams’ employees (Tom LaLonde, Chris Suhr, Stacy Jozwiak, Brittany O'Connor, Scott Morlock & Karen Lellios) spent the day working on various projects - seeding the lawn, siding the house, etc. What a wonderful experience for such a terrific organization.

Kids Alive

Earlier this year, company President Mark Bushhouse spent a week in the Dominican Republic helping "Kids Alive" with their mission to save children. Sponsored through the Wheaton Bible Church, Mark's time was spent expanding an orphanage and school for the local children in Constanza.
