There is power in numbers and there is power in partnership.
Halifax Habitat for Humanity relies primarily on a great number of community partners to donate funds for home builds. Donations come from many sources including individuals, churches, civic groups, and local businesses.
This past year, members of the Rotary Club of Daytona Beach West have worked long and hard to raise a total of $80,000 to help launch a Veterans Build – where Habitat will build a house with a U.S. Military Veteran. Florida Power and Light and a second Rotary club, Daytona Beach Rotary, have joined as community partners to support the build.
What is Veterans Build?
A Veterans Build is Habitat for Humanity’s national initiative to provide housing solutions and volunteer and employment opportunities to U.S. veterans, military service members and their families.
On October 19th, nearly 70 people came out to support the groundbreaking and celebrate the new partnership.
Halifax Habitat was honored to have representatives from the United States Air Force, United States Navy, and U.S. Army in attendance along with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University ROTC (Army, Navy, Air Force) and Mainland High School ROTC (Air Force).
