Last week, Team Nautique joined Habitat for Humanity to lend a hand with the build of a townhome community that Nautique sponsors here in Central Florida. For some of the athletes, this was the first time they had ever been on a build site or done any sort of construction work at all. For others, years of home improvement projects and rail builds really came in handy. There is a certain type of motivation you get when working for the greater good, and that feeling was apparent in every smiling face on the build site along with every blistered hand. They nearly had to force our team off the jobsite at the end of the day with the athletes checking schedules to see when they would be able to make it back to help finish the job!
Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit, non-denominational Christian housing ministry with a mission to provide simple, decent, affordable houses to families with a housing need.
Nautique has been working with Habitat for Humanity for a number of years; through the Nautique Cares program everyone in the Nautique family has the opportunity to give back through various organizations and projects all over the world. Beyond building world-class boats, Nautique is dedicated to making the world a better place on and off the water, and giving back is a huge part of our company culture.
