Thank you to the South Florida Sun Sentinel and Austen Erblat for sharing our story. It was an exciting, meaningful morning celebrating Habitat’s relationship with the Boynton Beach CRA and the City of Boynton Beach, Government, Government that will bring the five Habitat single-family homes to this Model Block initiative. This collaboration along with the generosity of the presenting home sponsors Sklar Furnishings and Publix Supermarket Charities for our first two homes of five to be built will impact each homebuyer family and the Boynton Beach community for generations to come.
Habitat SPBC tips our hard hats off toward the Neighborhood Officer Program and the Boynton Beach Police Department. Their unwavering support of our mission shows their commitment to not only making our community safer, but also to building a stronger community alongside Habitat’s mission. Catch them in action last Friday assisting us in providing “A Brush With Kindness”!
This morning, we welcomed more than 100 Orangetheory Fitness Corporate Office team members to revitalize six homes in a Habitat-built community, Ocean Breeze West, in Boynton Beach, FL. These passionate and generous volunteers, led by our team of construction professionals and volunteer crew leaders, are hard at work providing “A Brush With Kindness” to transform these homes, and doing it with ear-to-ear smiles of pride! Habitat SPBC is honored by Orangetheory Fitness’ commitment to building a stronger community.
Our construction sites have been quite active this summer with local businesses supporting Habitat SPBC's mission through our Team Build program! Habitat's Team Build program allows for local businesses to bring up to 20 team members to a Habitat construction site to serve as the hands & feet of our mission, building the homes of our Habitat Partner Families. We would like to extend our gratitude to the teams from Orangetheory Fitness, Estimating Edge, The Altman Companies and Bloomingdale's for their incredible commitment to partnering alongside Habitat SPBC in building a stronger community.

Thank you to the Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl and its Executive Director Doug Mosley (who is also a Habitat for Humanity SPBC Board Member) for bringing out Bowl Partners Crocker Partners, GL Homes and Tire Kingdom this morning to help give a hand up, not hand out to a Habitat Partner Family. It was wonderful to have more than 40 executives and their employees onsite raising hammers and wielding power tools in carpentry work to install window boxes and do a wide range of interior finishings. It was great to have 2017 Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl Champion FAU Athletics Running Back Gerald Hearns — who has a history of supporting Habitat for Humanity — there to cheer on and work alongside the Bowl’s Partner Builders.
