PRLog - April 26, 2012 - (JACKSONVILLE, Fla.) – During the down economy, many charitable organizations have had to come up with creative ways “to do more with less.” The reality of decreased individual and government funding has forced nonprofits to turn to the local business community for help.

One such organization, Beaches Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit housing agency dedicated to eliminating substandard housing in the Jacksonville Beaches area, has received a huge helping hand from PODS® Jacksonville, a local moving and storage company.

For more than two years, PODS has supported Beaches Habitat by donating the use of PODS® containers and logistics services at multiple Habitat home construction sites.

“Beaches Habitat is so grateful to PODS Jacksonville for their generous support,” said Ralph Marcello, President of Beaches Habitat. “They secure and store our tools and equipment at each build site and, in the process, help make the entire build run more smoothly and efficiently.”

During the week of May 5 – 13, National Women Build Week, Beaches Habitat will host a series of events designed to challenge women to devote at least one day to creating simple, decent and affordable housing in their communities. This year’s theme, “The Build Generation,” reflects the organizations goal to recruit and train more women volunteers as well as welcome the next generation, women ages 18 – 24, to the ranks of Habitat’s dedicated supporter corps.

“It is a pleasure to work in collaboration with an organization that does so much for the good people of Jacksonville,” said Bill Eales, manager of PODS Jacksonville. “We have made community support a big part of our business model and enjoy doing our part to help make Beaches Habitat’s job just a little bit easier.”

Women Build Week will include an April 26 “Build a Friend-Raiser,” May 1 Lowe’s Skills Clinic and two women build days on Wednesday, May 9 and Saturday, May 12. For more information or to volunteer, contact Sarah Rutkowski, Beaches Habitat volunteer coordinator: (904) 241-1222 or sarah@beacheshabitat.org.
