On November 15th, SBS Group employees volunteered their time for the Greater Plainfield Habitat for Humanity Project. SBS President James R. Bowman, Jr. and staff members Brandon Harris, Tammer Badran, Michael Byrne, Ryan Dreissig and Christopher Flood spent the Saturday afternoon in Plainfield, NJ taping and spackling the site’s garage and upper bedrooms. Team leader, Ed, a dedicated Habitat volunteer of more than a decade guided the team throughout the day. The site is set for completion by the end of this year.

“The support we give to our community helps define our company and ourselves,” said James R. Bowman, President of SBS Group. “This is always a special time when the SBS family really comes out to support the holiday spirit.”
