We were doubly pleased to dedicate two more Habitat homes this weekend in our Dunedin townhome community, Shady Grove! Congratulations to the Bostrom and Troupe families whose homes were blessed and dedication on Saturday, November 23rd amongst Habitat supporters and their Shady Grove neighbors.

Special thanks to Juneau Colleur of Valpak and David Gerald of Anona First United Methodist Church who presented gifts to the family during the dedication. Many thanks to our Homeowner Services volunteers, Carol Dunn and Selim Aktel, for their guidance of the Bostrom and Troupe families as they worked to complete the requirements of our Habitat program. Selim, also a Habitat homeowner in the Shady Grove community, presented the families with the keys to their new homes. We were also pleasantly surprised when Dunedin Mayor Dave Eggers dropped by to congratulate the families.

Welcome home to the Bostrom and Troupe families!

FIS Global employees volunteer to help landscape Shady Grove townhomes!

Friday, November 22, 2013

Last Wednesday we had 10 employees of FIS Global digging in the dirt at our Dunedin townhome community. The volunteers came out to help us landscape two recently completed townhomes, which were dedicated on the following Saturday morning, November 23rd for the Bostrom and Troupe families. 

The enthusiastic group worked hard laying sod, planting flowers and shrubs, and mulching. And an excellent job they did!

FIS is the world’s largest global provider dedicated to banking and payments technologies. Headquartered in Jacksonville, FIS has an office in our Pinellas community.

Thank you to FIS for organizing a volunteer staff day to help us out!

Congratulations to Petra Castilla and her adorable sons, whose home we dedicated on November 16th among many of her friends, family and Habitat supporters.

To escape a light drizzle, the dedication was held inside of the Clearwater home, which was rehabbed over the last several months by scores of volunteers, including a team of enthusiastic Wells Fargo volunteers. Donnell Smith of Wells Fargo presented Petra with the key to her home. Tearfully, Petra expressed her appreciation for the Habitat program and all the volunteers who came out to work on her home.

Many thanks to Linda Higgins of Valpak and David Gerald of Anona First Methodist Church who presented gift to the family during the ceremony.

With the dedication of the Castilla home, Habitat has dedicated its 283rd home in Pinellas County.
