Press Release – Nassau Habitat for Humanity – December 7, 2017
Nassau Habitat for Humanity and Publix Super Markets Charities are pleased to announce that Nassau Habitat has been selected to receive a major donation for the 2017 – 2018 construction season.
Publix has been a consistent long-term supporter of Nassau Habitat. Their annual contribution has helped Nassau Habitat fulfill its mission of “eliminating substandard housing in Nassau County …. One home at a time”. Nassau Habitat started building in Fernandina Beach in 1995 and has completed a total of 40 homes as of May 2017. Habitat has started two new homes at 917 and 919 S.7th street. These homes will be ready for move in by mid-June 2018.
On December 8th Publix Super Markets Charities will be presenting a significant donation to Nassau Habitat for Humanity. This donation is the largest donation Nassau Habitat has received since its founding in 1994 and will substantially cover all costs associated with one of our new homes. Publix will come to Fernandina on December 8th and present a check to Nassau Habitat at 10:00 am at the auditorium within the Peck Center located at 516 S. 10th Street.
Nassau Habitat and the entire community of Fernandina Beach is thankful for the generosity of this gift and recognizes the unique level of support this gift represents. Publix Super Markets Charities has provided an example of how a local business can make a difference in helping Fernandina Beach deal with the problem of the lack of affordable housing.
