Three local restaurants have sponsored homes this year! McKenna’s Seafood, McDonalds and Norwood’s have each contributed the total cost of materials to build homes for families in need of assistance.McKenna’s sponsored our newest five bedroom home at 3414 Woodland Drive, Edgewater. This is home to a couple with seven young children (the oldest is 10!). McDonald’s made possible a home at 2217 Robin Road, New Smyrna. This home was built for a single mom with four children! Norwood’s provided the funds for a new home at 436 Corbin Park Rd., New Smyrna – a single mom and her 3 year old son!
This is the FIFTH year that McDonalds and Norwood’s have sponsored homes; the first year for McKenna’s. All the donations were made possible by the Community Contribution Tax Credit, a program that enables businesses to designate the use of the sales tax dollars they collect. In addition, each business must provide 200 employee or recruited volunteer labor hours toward the construction.These contributions demonstrate the commitment these local businesses have to their community and neighbors. We hope that you will thank them with your patronage – and it wouldn’t hurt to tell them why!
