SARASOTA, Fla. -- Taylor Morrison, a leading national homebuilder and developer recently presented Habitat for Humanity Sarasota (HFHS) with a donation of $9,500 as part of the company’s charitable donation program. The check was presented on March 8th by Cammie Longenecker, Taylor Morrison’s Southwest Florida Division President, to support HFHS’s Veteran Build program. It was accepted by Rhonda Leiberick, Program Director for Habitat for Humanity Sarasota.
The Veteran Build program at Habitat for Humanity partners with military service members, their families and the families of the fallen to reinforce their strength and self-reliance through employment, volunteerism, homeownership and home repair. It provides safe, affordable homes to low-income working families. Dedicated volunteers provide on average of 2,500 labor-hours per home, resulting in a 30% reduction in construction cost. The organization builds new homes (and renovates purchased properties) with an emphasis on energy efficient features using building materials and techniques for sustainability, culminating in lower monthly expenses for homeowners. “Habitat Sarasota is delighted to partner with Taylor Morrison through our Veteran Build program,” said Renee Snyder, Executive Director for HFHS. It is more than providing a house for a veteran, it’s about investing in the men and women that have served our country.”
Through its charitable donation program, Taylor Morrison, Inc. matches contributions of employees in each division up to 50% per year towards a charity of the division’s choice. Past gifts from the West Florida team have benefitted Nate’s Honor Animal Rescue, Shriners Hospitals for Children and various other charities. “We have a strong sense of community within our company and are always eager and willing to give back,” said Taylor Morrison Southwest Florida Division President, Cammie Longenecker. “Habitat for Humanity is a great organization with a great purpose and we are excited to be able to contribute to such a great cause and program.”
