Over twenty A. R. Chesson Construction Company employees are scheduled to volunteer at the latest home construction site for Chowan-Perquimans Habitat for Humanity. The approximately 1,400 square foot house will be built at 196 Old Hertford Rd in Edenton, NC. The volunteer staff will arrive on Saturday, September 10, 2016 to a blank slab, and will leave after erecting the entire structural frame.

A. R. Chesson Construction encourages all employees to get involved in their local community by providing one hour per month of company time for volunteering for each employee. The organization has logged over 300 volunteer hours, including personal time since May. The employee’s volunteer activities include giving time to church, civic, and other community groups. The Habitat for Humanity project is a wonderful opportunity to serve our community as a group and will be a great team building experience.
