- Nissan has contributed more than $15.5 million to Habitat nationally since 2005
- 2018 donation funds home builds in 12 communities where Nissan employees live and work
- Nissan Canton and Smyrna Vehicle Assembly Plant employees recently dedicated two new Habitat homes
"There is a growing need for affordable housing across the U.S.," said Nissan Vice President of Corporate Development and Social Responsibility Rebecca Vest. "Nissan values its partnership with Habitat for Humanity because it helps build sustainable communities where our employees live and work. Our employees look forward to working alongside future homeowners, and their experiences affirm our corporate vision to enrich people's lives."
The majority of Nissan's 2018 donation will go toward the building costs of Habitat homes in locations where Nissan has an operational presence, for vehicle purchases for use by local Habitat organizations and sponsorship of the Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project.
"Nissan's 13-year commitment to Habitat has played an important role in helping families achieve affordable homeownership," said Colleen Finn Ridenhour, the senior vice president of development at Habitat for Humanity. "We are grateful for Nissan's continuous generous support and the many volunteers who have built alongside future homeowners."
