Habitat for Humanity Detroit is excited to announce it received a TITAN pickup truck from Nissan. The donation is part of Nissan’s $800K national partnership renewal with Habitat for Humanity to support local Habitat affiliates across the U.S.
Nissan is donating five vehicles to local Habitat affiliates this year to use for hauling and transport of materials to their homesites. Additionally, Nissan employees will volunteer in 12 communities near Nissan’s manufacturing and operational locations.
“Nissan is deeply committed to the areas where our customers, employees, and dealers live and work, and our partnership with Habitat for Humanity is one way that we invest in these communities,” said Travis Parman, vice president, Corporate Communications, Nissan North America, Inc. “Our employees, working alongside our partners at Habitat and the future homeowners, are able to directly improve their local communities and help families build a safe and decent place to call home.”
Nissan has contributed more than $20 million to Habitat nationally since the partnership began in 2005 when Nissan donated 50 trucks and mobilized employees to assist in home building following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in the Gulf Coast region. Nissan has continued its support through the years by donating an additional 160 vehicles to support construction activities and disaster recovery efforts. Furthermore, Nissan’s employees have contributed more than 112,400 volunteer hours working alongside future homeowners in communities across the U.S.
“Habitat Detroit is so incredibly grateful to our outstanding national partner Nissan and their generous support of our work. We have put many, many miles on our current truck which has created a great need for a safe, reliable vehicle,” said Mary Ellen Kearney, Director of Philanthropy for Habitat Detroit. “Our new TITAN will certainly help us get jobs done across Detroit and allow us to continue to serve our neighbors. Thank you again to Nissan for helping drive our work forward as we build the future of Detroit!
