Now Building in El Salvador!print page
El Salvador is the smallest and most densely populated country in Central America, and many of the country's people live in extreme poverty in poorly constructed homes. When Hurricane Ida hit this already troubled country, over 16,000 homes were destroyed. Thousands of people with no place to call home was not something we could ignore.
2010, 2012 and 2013 were our first experiences...
Our home building skills meant we could make a dramatic impact, and we definitely put our skills to work. In December of 2010, Stepper Custom Homes provided the funding for 40 employees and spouses to go to El Salvador. The mission? To build 16 homes in 20 days!
When we left El Salvador we knew we had changed lives forever, including our own. But there were so many more people who still needed help. We didn't forget them, so we returned for more in January 2012 & 2013. We've also made a video of our experience and what it means to us!
We have returned from our exciting 3rd trip to El Salvador with even more stories to tell. We completed another 20 homes in 14 days, which brings our total homes built in El Salvador to over 150! If you want to know more about our recent journey, visit our Facebook page to see the stories and photos! We look forward to our next visit with the wonderful, welcoming people of El Salvador!
After three successful trips, we've embarked on a fourth...
On September 9, 2013 we had our 4th Annual Stepper Foundation Golf Classic at Country Hills Golf Course. We had glorious sunny weather and it was a wonderful day! We had a full tournament, with all sponsors helping us fundraise for our most recent 2014 trips! Through the tournament and other fundraising, we raised enough money to buy the materials for another 20 homes! Thank you to all of our 2013 Home, Hole, and other sponsors for all of their support!
