Wayfair joins Teton Habitat to support Phase III of The Grove

Wayfair donates all the bathroom fixtures to homeowners at The Grove, Phase III.

Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area (Teton Habitat) and Wayfair, one of the world’s largest online destinations for the home, are collaborating to support the development of Phase III of The Grove, a multi-family condominium complex that will provide housing to an estimated 32 adults and 54 children.  Residents at The Grove will benefit from Wayfair’s vast renovation product selection and receive donated fixtures such as bathroom vanities, countertops, mirrors, toilets, and towel racks. In addition, residents also received sink and shower fixtures from Kohler.

“Since 2012, Wayfair has partnered with Habitat for Humanity International, our headquarters, as well as local affiliates across the nation. We were very eager to build a direct relationship and help promote their versatile contractor services in Jackson,” says Kendra Heimbuck, Teton Habitat’s Executive Director.

The donated fixtures are currently being installed in eight homes, the first to be ready for residents at The Grove. Future homeowners were overjoyed to unwrap the bathroom vanity packages from Wayfair during a recent Saturday build day.

“It’s so beautiful!” exclaimed Nicolle Moyer, future Habitat Homeowner “I can’t believe this is going into my house.”

Habitat is currently under construction with 16 of the 24 units in Phase III of The Grove. The first eight units are expected to be finished in late September.

“We’re proud to support such an important project in the Jackson Hole community by working with Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area to provide needed bathroom fixtures for the homeowners at The Grove,” said Jane Carpenter, Head of Corporate Social Responsibility at Wayfair. “Habitat for Humanity’s critical work in local communities supports our core mission to help people live in a comfortable home that they love.”
