Nissan Invests More into Partnership Habitat for Humanity
Investing time, energy and funds into Habitat for Humanity isn't a new initiative for Nissan Americas. In fact, the organizations' partnership dates back six years, now. It all started in 2005, just after Hurricane Katrina and Rita nailed the southeast. In addition, to considerable monetary donations, Nissan employees have logged over 56,000 hours helping the non-profit build homes for people in need.
All of this, however, isn't enough...at least not in the eyes of Nissan Americas. As such, the automaker has just announced plans to grow their partnership with Habitat for Humanity. In addition to a hefty 2.5-million-dollar charitable contribution, Nissan Americas has taken the extra step of inviting company stakeholders to also support the worthy cause.
"Nissan's financial support enables us to help more families improve their living conditions in ways they can afford," said Jonathan Reckford, CEO, Habitat for Humanity International, in response to Nissan America's announcement. "We are extremely grateful to have a partner like Nissan that shares our commitment to building sustainable communities. This is an exciting opportunity for our affiliates and for our recovery work in Haiti."1
Speaking of Habitat for Humanity's efforts in Haiti, the non-profit is expected to use much of Nissan's recent donation to help fund next month's perennial Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter Work Project, which takes place in...you guessed it... Haiti. The remaining funds will be used to cover building-supply costs and other expenses for projects around the world.
