The Wizard of Oz and Habitat for Humanity Kickoff the “There’s No Place Like Home” Initiative in Long Beach, CA

Warner Bros. joined forces with Habitat for Humanity to kick off the “There’s No Place Like Home” initiative on Tuesday, September 24, 2013, in Long Beach, CA with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles.

Employees from Warner Bros., Habitat for Humanity International and Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles, as well as sponsors IMAX Corporation and the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, were on-site to participate in the home build as well as a beautification project at the nearby Burnett Library.

Artist James Mulligan designed the beautiful Wizard of Oz themed mural for the Burnett Library. Volunteers worked diligently with Mulligan to complete the mural, which was revealed at the close of the event. The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity will continue their relationship with the Burnett Library by setting up special “Wizard of Oz” art days where artist volunteers will work with the children visiting the library.

This event was a fantastic beginning to the year-long campaign which supports Habitat for Humanity’s work to create decent, safe, and affordable housing in partnership with hardworking, low-income families.
