Boca Raton’s Broken Sound Country Club has donated money to Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County to build two new homes.
The club donated a total of $179,750 as well as a truck full of household donations including artwork, lamps, oriental rugs, dining room suites and even a stainless steel kitchen stove.
Residents of the club were invited to help and donate household items to help other local families. The items will be donated to the nonprofit’s home improvement center thrift shop ReStores in Boca Raton and Delray.
“We at Broken Sound Club are so proud to continue our tradition and community legacy by kicking off this community challenge and supporting the construction of two new Habitat homes,” said club General Manager and Chief Operating Officer John Crean, CCE. “Our more than 2,800 members residing in our club’s 27 neighborhoods applaud the work and strides achieved by Habitat for Humanity in South Palm Beach County and are honored to be part of its growth. It is our vision that more private clubs and community homeowners associations take the competitive collective challenge of stocking up the ReStores and expanding Habitat neighborhoods.”
Proceeds from the nonprofit’s ReStores fund the permitting and construction operations that deliver affordable homes for hard working families in our community who cannot seem to get ahead and qualify for traditional bank mortgages by offering sweat equity programs and interest free mortgages to break the poverty cycle and change the trajectory of entire families for generations.
Proceeds also support increased programming and education scholarships for children of homeowners to restore hope by breaking challenging economic cycles.
Inventory at the ReStores, shopped by the general public and designers, feature not just gently used items from individuals, but also new designer furniture, accessories and artwork retailers and housing supply manufacturers (including hurricane shutters) from warehouse overstocks and floor models to make room for new incoming merchandise.
“HFHSPC is always a hand-up, never a hand-out,” said Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County CEO and President Randy Nobles.“Support of our mission strengthens our community and is one of the greatest social impacts one can make through their donations to or buying from our ReStores, sponsoring the construction of new homes, and participating in one of our volunteer home builds.”
