Akel Homes Sponsors Habitat for Humanity’s 2021 CEO Build Event
Thursday, November 11, 2021
Akel Homes participated in Habitat for Humanity’s CEO Build Event, where CEO Builders join forces to raise hammers, power tools, and funds to help hard-working low-income families build strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable housing. Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization where prospective homeowners and volunteers work alongside one another to build their home.
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that works to provide affordable homeownership opportunities for hardworking, deserving, low-income families in Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, and Boca Raton, Florida. This non-profit builds homes in partnership with families who demonstrate a need for housing and a willingness to partner with Habitat to purchase a home of their own.
On October 15th, 2021, Horacio Moncada – Director of Land Development at Akel Homes served his community at the CEO Build Event. Each “CEO Builder” had the opportunity to dedicate a half-day build shift, while building alongside other leaders and Habitat families. To make the CEO Build effort possible, business leaders are asked to each donate or raise a set dollar amount that goes to support the 2021 CEO build home and Habitat’s overall mission in our community. Habitat for Humanity exceeded their goal by raising over $250,000.
Akel Homes assisted in building a home that will belong to the Wilson Family, the newest Habitat for Humanity Homeowner, by specifically participating in the roofing activities. Habitat for Humanity provides volunteers with a true hands-on experience in regards to homebuilding. Habitat for Humanity consists of one of the three non-profit organizations that Akel Homes has chosen to sponsor within its local community.
“It was a great opportunity to participate in the CEO Build Event. Being able to meet the Wilson Family and see the real impact we had on them, was truly rewarding” – Horacio Moncada, Director of Land Development at Akel Homes.
