MarineMax sponsoring Habitat For Humanity breaks ground

On Friday, June 30, partners of Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County, sponsors and elected officials, including Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos and Florida Rep. Larry Ahern, came together to celebrate the groundbreaking of 12 homes in the North Garden Avenue neighborhood of Clearwater. This new development will provide 12 more Pinellas County families the opportunity to live and thrive in their safe and secure homes, which are scheduled for completion in time for the 2017 Christmas holiday.

“The City of Clearwater appreciates being able to work with Habitat Pinellas to provide the ‘American dream’ for city residents,” said Cretekos. “First at Steven’s Creek and now in the North Marina District, new residents through this partnership will also help revitalize a neighborhood and provide stability as the city works to expand housing opportunities.” 

MarineMax is built on a foundation of bringing friends, family and the community together. We are happy to give back to the community which has helped us grow into the business that we are today,” said Brett McGill, MarineMax chief operating officer. 

Executives from each of the sponsor and six of the new homes’ families were present for the groundbreaking ceremony, which included commentary by Clearwater’s Mayor and Habitat Pinellas team members.

“Habitat Pinellas has enjoyed a long relationship with the City of Clearwater,” said Mike Sutton, CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County. “This partnership has allowed our organization to collaborate with sponsors and the community to build over 100 homes in the City of Clearwater since our inception.”
