PRLog - Dec. 6, 2012 - ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Employees from Tampa Bay-based business Power Design, Inc. recently teamed up with Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County to help build homes that will provide affordable housing for low-income families.
Habitat for Humanity
“We were excited to support Habitat for Humanity,” said Bobby Howard, Power Design employee. “I was amazed to see so many Power Design employees came together for such an amazing cause.”
More than 20 employees volunteered their time and efforts to help complete two homes within Habitat’s Steven’s Creek subdivision located in Clearwater, Fla. Habitat Pinellas has completed 18 of the 51 homes slated for the neighborhood and has dedicated 257 homes throughout Pinellas County since 1985.
About Habitat For Humanity of Pinellas County
Since 1985, Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County has constructed 256 homes for struggling families in Pinellas County, using locally raised funds. Volunteers and the future homeowners construct the homes, which are sold at no profit and financed with a zero-interest loan. Habitat Pinellas homeowner candidates earn 30 to 80 percent of area median income. For Pinellas County, that translates to as little as $25,000 a year for a family of four. Candidates must also demonstrate need for adequate shelter; ability to pay back a zero-interest loan and willingness to partner with Habitat Pinellas to invest 250 to 350 sweat equity hours. Mortgage monies are used to build even more homes, making each donation to Habitat a perpetual legacy to the community. Habitat believes that home ownership contributes to family stability, leading in turn to community stability. Additionally, Habitat Pinellas raises funds through their ReStore, a home improvement store where donated household and building items are sold to the public.For more information about Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County, contact (727) 536-4755 or visit www.HabitatPinellas.org.
