Habitat For Humanity
Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses alongside the homeowner partner families. Vanderbilt volunteers have been working at the Liberty Landing Development in Immokalee painting, caulking and spackling. Working with the homeowner partners, the volunteers have experienced the human element of sharing with those less fortunate. On several occasions the new homeowner has invited volunteers for a cook-out after they have finished.
Vanderbilt Continues Partnership with Habitat for Humanity: This past year 2012 represented the 7th consecutive year in which Vanderbilt Country Club has partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Collier County, through the Community Contribution Tax Credit Program (CCTCP). During this time period, Vanderbilt CC has provided $479,757.63 to Habitat for Humanity of Collier County, resulting in the sponsoring and building of eight (8) homes for deserving Habitat families. The Club recently received the sales tax credit/refund check in the amount of $120,000 from the State of Florida for the building of two 2011 homes. A check in this amount has been forwarded to Habitat for Humanity of Collier County. For 2013, to hopefully include the sponsoring and building of a 9th & 10th home for Habitat for Humanity of Collier County, the application process will begin mid-summer 2013. Congratulations and “thank you” to all of our Vanderbilt Country Club members, who are able to volunteer their time and efforts towards the building of these homes for these deserving Habitat families.
