Ply Gem's Home For Good Project

Making a Difference for Families Across the U.S.

A home run content strategy

Ply Gem believes that everyone deserves a place to call home. They’ve taken their passion for creating innovative products that make beautiful homes and turned it into a mission through the Home for Good project.

Five years into our relationship, Ply Gem needed help designing and executing the content strategy for their corporate giving campaign, Home for Good. We gladly rose to the occasion, bringing an intimate knowledge of their brand together with our experience crafting creative digital solutions.

While working with Habitat for Humanity, Ply Gem has helped build 450 homes in 70 different communities across the country, and that’s only the beginning.

Video Production

Raleigh, NC

Our team was onsite at five construction jobsites over ten days in Raleigh, North Carolina. Our goal was to capture unique perspectives from builders, homeowners, and volunteers throughout the build process. Our content capture included aerial photo and video, timelapses, interviews, and extensive b-roll which was catalogued for future use.

Each day of the build, we provided a quick turnaround on stills and video cut downs for media distribution. Throughout the week we assembled multiple fast turnaround new media deliverables, including a recap video. The builders, homeowners and volunteers were invited to join us for a private concert by Brett Young on the last day of the build. Our recap video opened the concert, and provided an opportunity for those involved in the build to see how their contribution added to the overall transformation.

Yard-Nique created beautiful landscapes, transforming the curb appeal and helping make these houses really feel like homes.

Ply Gem—through its Home for Good project—has already done inspiring work by helping to build more than 450 affordable homes. I, personally, can relate to how important it is to have a place to come home to. I’m excited to be involved this year.

Everyday citizens of Cleveland who came together to make a difference in their community share what this project means to them.

I partnered with Ply Gem and Habitat for Humanity last year on several homes in Cleveland, Ohio and I was able to be there to help welcome the families into their new homes. I think I was just as excited as they were! It was so special and I’m looking forward to doing even more this year.
