Children in need of medical care will soon have access to a larger, full-service, state-of-the-art facility right here in Southwest Florida. Many children have to travel to Tampa or Miami to receive the specialized treatment they need, but once completed, this new facility will offer some relief and alleviate some of the travel stress burdening these families.

Johnson Engineering has been a part of the Southwest Florida community for 68 years and our employees have always shown interest in the many ways we can give back to our community. When Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties said they were looking to partner with local businesses to volunteer to build a home for a family in our community, our employees heeded the call.

On Saturday, May 5, nine Johnson Engineering employees and their family members spent the day at a Habitat Home construction site in Fort Myers. Their tasks included such things as drilling, sawing, measuring, and scraping all in order to prepare this Habitat house to be lived in by a deserving family.

Not only does this benefit a family, but it also provides a positive team-building experience for our employees. We hope our efforts will encourage other companies to follow suit and promote their own company volunteer day. It was a rewarding experience for all.
