MarineMax is dedicated to making a difference on and off the water. For the seventh straight year, MarineMax has partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas and West Pasco to sponsor a home for a deserving family.

Brett McGill, MarineMax CEO and President, comments, "We feel privileged to be part of the Habitat for Humanity program annually and to have an opportunity to extend a hand to families in need of homes. It's incredibly rewarding to witness the life-changing impact it brings. At MarineMax, we cherish the opportunity to unite as a team and contribute our efforts to making a meaningful difference in these families lives."

This year's home dedication occurred on April 30 for the Hadley family. Jannese Hadley is a front desk receptionist and single mother to her two sons, Jah'Veon (10) and Jah'Len (7). Before getting the keys to their new home, the family of three lived at Jannese's grandmother's home, which was extremely challenging. The house was overcrowded, with one bathroom to share, and had a lot of maintenance issues, including a floor that was about to cave in and a leaky roof. Getting accepted into the Habitat program was truly life-changing for the family. "I cried tears of joy," Jannese said. "I immediately called up my boys to tell them the news." Her sons were incredibly proud of their mother for this accomplishment. They told her, "Mommy, whenever you tell us you're going to do something, you do it. You never let us down."

Jannese and her sons are very excited to have a place they can call their own now. For Jannese, it has always been a goal to set a foundation and create stability for her family. She is most looking forward to decorating, planting flowers, and sitting out on her front porch, watching her children play in the yard.

Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas and West Pasco helps low-income families purchase a house with a zero-interest mortgage to help build generational wealth and equity for families, breaking the cycle of poverty. Recipients participate in educational seminars to set them up for success and work alongside sponsors to accrue 350 to 450 "sweat equity hours." A decent home offers families the strength, stability, and independence to thrive. Habitat for Humanity houses are accessible in all 50 states and more than 70 other countries through donations and volunteer efforts. MarineMax looks forward to continuing its long-standing relationship with Habitat for Humanity for many years to come.
