RAPID CITY, S.D. – Black Hills Area Habitat for Humanity is excited to announce it received a Frontier 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 to support serving families in need of affordable homeownership solutions including critical projects surrounding new home construction and home repair. 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.
“We are grateful to work with generous partners like Nissan who are dedicated to transforming lives through affordable home ownership,” said Scott Engmann, Black Hills Area Habitat Executive Director. “We are extremely thankful for Nissan’s commitment to Habitat at the local level. We have the privilege of working toward a common goal that transforms the lives of people who simply need a safe affordable place to live. Nissan’s commitment to Habitat for Humanity helps us create stronger communities right here in the Black Hills.”
