Habitat for Humanity

TAMPA BAY, FLORIDA (Tampa Bay Newspapers) - Habitat for Humanity presented the keys to the Soto family for their new house on Ridge Road NW. that was built with funds through grant program sponsored by Nissan.

Largo Mayor Pat Gerard and city Commissioner Michael Smith participated in the April 1 dedication ceremony. Shirley Miaoulis, district representative for the Office of Congressman C.W. Bill Young, presented the Soto family with an American flag that has been flown over the U.S. capitol.

Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County is one of 10 Habitat affiliates among 1,527 nationwide selected to participate in a new sustainable building grant program sponsored by Nissan. The $380,000 grant program consists of cash and vehicle donations, with each of the 10 Habitat affiliates receiving $15,000 and a Nissan Frontier truck. The Habitat Pinellas construction staff will use the truck.

Habitat Pinellas used its grant money to sponsor the construction of the Soto’s Energy Star rated home.

“The sustainable building grant program is part of a renewed $2.5 million partnership between Habitat for Humanity International, and Nissan’s vision is for all its stakeholders to participate in the partnership, using point-of-sale materials in dealerships and Nissan media communications to inform employees and customers of Habitat volunteer opportunities,” a Habitat news release said.

To date, Nissan has donated more than $7.5 million in cash and in-kind gifts to Habitat for Humanity International, and its employees have built more than 50 Habitat homes, logging more than 56,000 volunteer hours with Habitat.
