FPL volunteers shine a bright light on Veteran’s Habitat home

Halifax Habitat for Humanity has enjoyed long-term partnerships with local Rotary Clubs and Florida Power & Light Company.  The synergy created by these partnerships resulted in an ideal opportunity to “energize” a Habitat home build project with a local military veteran.

Larry Volenec, FPL External Affairs manager, made a $10,000 donation to Halifax Habitat for Humanity on behalf of the company to support the veteran build house sponsorship by the Rotary Club of Daytona Beach West.

The veteran build projects honor those local veterans who have visible and invisible wounds of war.  The Rotary Club committed its resources to raise the necessary funds to build this home and expressed their gratitude to FPL for its involvement in this special partnership. Read more
