AutoNation and Maroone women build Habitat homes

A few weeks ago, AutoNation and Maroone team members volunteered in “Women Build”, a special project by Habitat for Humanity of Broward to empower women. The project involves more than 500 powerful women from Broward County who over the next few months will build several homes in the Oakland Park neighborhood of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., for low-income families.

“The Women Build program enables us to recruit, educate and nurture women in our community to build and advocate for simple, decent, affordable houses,” said Habitat Broward board member and Women Build committee chair Nancy Daly. (Sun-Sentinel)

AutoNation and Maroone are proud sponsors of Habitat for Humanity.

“Our associates love to volunteer for community projects. At a Habitat build, they work side-by-side with owners-to-be and sometimes their children (if they’re over 16). It makes you realize you’re not just building a house – you’re building a home and changing lives by doing so,” said AutoNation Vice President of Corporate Affairs Gale Butler.

If you’d like to get involved with the Women Build project or other Habitat for Humanity projects in your community, visit Habitat.org.
