MarineMax donated its fourth Habitat for Humanity home to a local family
For the fourth year in a row, MarineMax partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas and West Pasco County to present a deserving Tampa Bay area family a new home in Pinellas Park.
On the morning of June 15, 2021, the family arrived at their new home.
As an added surprise, Warrick Dunn Charities, Aaron’s and Cigna chipped in to fully furnish and stock the home with food and essential items.
“MarineMax is proud to partner, for the fourth time, with Habitat for Humanity. Not only do we get the chance to change a family’s life for the better, but our team comes together and builds our camaraderie while doing something for the greater good of our community,” said Abbey Heimensen, director of marketing at MarineMax, in a statement.
This home is number 685 in the community, built by Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas and West Pasco County. The organization helps low-income families purchase a house with a zero-interest mortgage to build generational wealth and equity in the family, breaking the cycle of poverty.
Recipients participate in educational seminars to set them up for success and work alongside sponsors to accrue 350 to 450 “sweat equity hours.”
