MISSISSAUGA, ONT. – Habitat for Humanity is calling on all Canadians to visit their local Nissan dealer over the next month, as Nissan Canada has pledged a donation of $20 to local Habitat for Humanity projects for each test drive in order to help more low-income families access affordable homeownership and break the cycle of poverty.
“Nissan Canada and its employees have been great supporters of Habitat’s work in Canada for over five years,” said Stewart Hardacre, President and CEO of Habitat for Humanity Canada. “Their employees regularly help out on builds and they provide much-needed financial support to help cover hard costs such as land and building materials. We are extremely grateful for their support.”
As part of Nissan Canada’s “Gift to You” holiday campaign, Nissan will also be donating an additional $5 to local Habitat affiliates for each new Facebook “like” they receive over the duration of the promotion, which ends December 24. Nationwide, Habitat for Humanity and Nissan Canada hope to generate $550,000 in total, which will help several more low-income families realize a safe and decent home they can afford.
“Nissan and our employees have been proud supporters of Habitat for Humanity Canada for the past five years, helping build numerous homes for Canadian families from coast to coast,” said Judy Wheeler, Director of Marketing, Nissan Canada Inc. “Everyone should be home for the holidays and with the funds raised through this campaign, we will ensure many more Canadians have a home to call their own this time next year.”
