This morning Habitat Pinellas staff members including CEO Mike Sutton, VP of Development Angie Croft, VP of Construction and Operations, Ken Rush and several other staff members stepped out of the office and onto a construction site to kick off the opening day of Habitat's 30th Anniversary home build site for the Trueblood family. Habitat Board Member, Jason Miller, his wife and homeowner candidate, Shavonda Trueblood also worked alongside us!
Teamwork was key in getting the framing for the roof up. Hard work was seen, laughs were heard and memories were shared. We want to give thanks to everyone that volunteered their
time to help us build today!

A loyal Habitat Pinellas supporter, U.S. Representative David Jolly coincidentally dropped by our office yesterday as we were celebrating World Habitat Day! Representative David Jolly has carried on former Representative CW Bill Young’s tradition of flying flags over the U.S. Capitol in DC in honor of each family we build for.
The flag is then presented to each family during their home dedication. We want to thank David Jolly for taking the time to carry out the tradition. By continuing to do so, we are able to provide each family with a token that they will forever remember.

Today Habitat Pinellas and 7 volunteers from Bank of America kicked off a day of painting at the Farrell family build site in spirit of World Habitat Day.This event is part of the second Global Build Week, an initiative by Bank of America and Habitat for Humanity to address affordable housing challenges.
On World Habitat Day, a day designated by the United Nations, Bank of America is helping Habitat for Humanity raise awareness, educating and mobilizing individuals and communities to take action on the need for affordable housing.
As part of the Global Build, an estimated 2,000 Bank of America volunteers will help to build and repair homes all over the Florida region, through 68 other U.S. communities and 7 international cities, including London, Hong Kong, Sydney, Jakarta, Manila, Toronto and Mumbai.

Today was the official ribbon cutting for the Family Promise Day Center! The non-profit organization works to provide temporary housing to families with children who have lost their homes. Family Promise primarily works with faith based institutions to accomplish their goals.
Habitat Pinellas had the pleasure of working alongside many other contributors such as Lowe’s and other businesses in Pinellas to help Family Promise of Pinellas County in preparing for their ribbon cutting. Habitat Pinellas staff members, along with several Habitat volunteers, worked with other members of the business community to help where we could to renovate the Day Center building and provide a solid base for the families Family Promise serves. As an organization that is dedicated to helping families in need, we were more than happy to assist Family Promise in renovating its Day Center.
What we do empowers the families and individuals we build homes for and puts them on a path of stabilization for a brighter future. Much of the same can be said of the work that Family Promise, its volunteers and host congregations do to support and help empower families that have lost everything and are truly desperate to make their way back to being self-sufficient.
We enjoyed being involved in the renovation process for the Day Center project. Best of luck to Family Promise of Pinellas County. We know you will do great things for our community!
