The Mosaic Company recently announced that it has given a gift of $1 million to Habitat for Humanity, with the commitment to help build 63 homes for families in southern Saskatchewan by 2015, totaling 100 homes built together since 2007.
Mosaic’s partnership with Habitat began with an initial donation of $450,000 that helped build 37 homes in the areas where the company operates. Additionally, Mosaic employees have actively volunteered on home build projects, with 200 individuals logging more than 2,100 volunteer hours in the last 18 months.
“Mosaic works with its partners to help them achieve long-term impact in the community,” said Joc O’Rourke, Mosaic’s Executive Vice President of Operations and Chief Operating Officer, at the announcement event held in Regina. “This donation to Habitat for Humanity is an investment into the future of our communities.”
“Our partnership with Mosaic will deliver affordable homeownership on a scale unprecedented in the history of Habitat in Saskatchewan,” said Rob Gartner, Chief Operating Officer of Habitat for Humanity Regina. “Together we are creating lasting change, for the families moving into their new homes and generations to follow.”
