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 currently are working at the Liberty Landing Development in Immokalee painting, caulking and spackling homes towards completion. Working with the homeowner partners, our volunteers have experienced the personal element of sharing with those less fortunate. On several occasions the new homeowner has invited volunteers for a cook-out after they have finished.
Habitat for Humanity of Collier County
Since 2006, Vanderbilt Country Club has partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Collier County through the Community Contribution Tax Credit Program (CCTCP). Dr. Sam Durso, CEO for the Habitat for
Humanity of Collier County, recently recognized VCC’s support. Since
2006, Vanderbilt Country Club has helped Habitat for Humanity of Collier County
to access $1,142,757 through the CCTCP program, empowering 21 families to fulfill their dream of homeownership. From 2006 to 2016, our
Vanderbilt members devoted 7,016 volunteer hours toward building of the 21 Habitat homes. On December
23, 2016, Vanderbilt received a refund check in the amount of $135,000.00 from
the state of Florida for its participation in the 2016 building of VCC's 20th and 21st Habitat homes. VCC immediately forwarded the funds to Habitat for Humanity of Collier
County. Vanderbilt will continue its partnership in 2017 with Habitat by building the 22nd and 23rd VCC-sponsored Habitat homes.
Congratulations and “thank you” to all of our Vanderbilt Country Club members, who volunteer their time and efforts towards the building of these homes for Habitat families.
