Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury is excited to announce it received a black Nissan Frontier truck as part of Nissan’s $800K national partnership renewal with Habitat for Humanity to support local Habitat affiliates across the U.S.
Nissan is donating five vehicles to local Habitat affiliates this year to use for their construction efforts. Additionally, Nissan employees will volunteer in 12 communities near Nissan’s manufacturing and operational locations.
“Nissan is deeply committed to the areas where our customers, employees, and dealers live and work, and our partnership with Habitat for Humanity is one way that we invest in these communities,” said Travis Parman, vice president, Corporate Communications, Nissan North America, Inc. “Our employees, working alongside our partners at Habitat and the future homeowners, are able to directly improve their local communities and help families build a safe and decent place to call home.”
Nissan has contributed more than $20 million to Habitat nationally since the partnership began in 2005 when Nissan donated 50 trucks and mobilized employees to assist in the home building following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in the Gulf Coast region. Nissan has continued its support through the years by donating an additional 160 vehicles to support construction activities and disaster recovery efforts. Furthermore, Nissan’s employees have contributed more than 112,400 volunteer hours working alongside future homeowners in communities across the U.S.
“Since 2006, Nissan has supported our Habitat affiliate through board membership, volunteer build days, vehicle donations, and 13 home sponsorships,” explains HFHWM President and COO Jennee Galland. “The company and its employees are true partners in Habitat’s mission to provide safe and affordable housing for families in need, and we are grateful for their ongoing generosity and dedication.”
