The Agency Arizona’s Build Day Recap: Bringing a Local Family Home

by | Oct 26, 2022

Team members from The Agency Arizona’s Scottsdale office came together for a special Build Day event with our charity partner, Giveback Homes. Agents and staff lent their time and homebuilding skills to craft a residence for Isamar, a local woman who works as a paralegal assistant for an immigration attorney and her two young daughters.  

Starting at 6:30AM, a group of 25 volunteers, including The Agency Scottsdale team and Giveback Homes co-founder, Caroline Pinal, who flew in from California for the event, took on a number of tasks—planting shrubs and flowers in the surrounding landscaping, finalizing the home’s interiors and completing a top-to-bottom clean. 

Their efforts did not go unnoticed by the home’s recipient, who shared her gratitude when she and her family moved in, just a few days later: “Thank you for this great opportunity. This means more to me than you could imagine. I am so happy and overwhelmed for this chance to own our own home.”

Around noon, when the big Build Day was complete, the Scottsdale team enjoyed a special lunch catered by Panera Bread and provided by Giveback Homes. 

Built in collaboration with sponsors Mighty United and the Methodist Coalition, the home is minutes from local parks, shops and a short drive from Downtown Scottsdale.
