Here's Why This Mississauga Neighbourhood is Getting Free Home Renovations
A major company has teamed up with a charitable organization to provide minor renovations to many homes plus a children’s park in Mississauga.
On September 26th, Habitat for Humanity Halton-Mississauga and Panasonic Canada is teaming up to transform a complete neighbourhood.
For the second year running, the pair will be hosting A Brush with Kindness, which is a home preservation program that provides painting and minor repair services for homeowners.
“These projects help families, individuals, and senior citizens reclaim their homes with pride and dignity. This initiative has been designed to provide neighbourhood revitalization on a large scale, giving new life to communities in need,” says Rebecca Mitchell, communications assistant for Habitat for Humanity Halton-Mississauga.
This year, the event is taking place in Ahneen Cooperative Housing neighbourhood, located at 2333 South Millway.
Around 90 volunteers from Panasonic Canada will roll up their sleeves to participate in the event from 8 a.m to 5 p.m.
A DJ will also be there to donate his time to keep up the level of excitement.
John Gerrard, CEO of Habitat for Humanity Halton-Mississauga, Michael Moskowitz, Chairman and CEO of Panasonic North America, and Ahneen Cooperative Housing will also be in attendance.
This will be Habitat for Humanity Halton-Mississauga’s second annual event working alongside Panasonic North America.
Founded in 1999, Habitat for Humanity Halton-Mississauga is part of the larger Habitat for Humanity Canada, which is a national, charitable organization working towards providing affordable homes and hardware to people in need.
“With the help of volunteers and Habitat homeowners, we provide a solid foundation for better, healthier lives in the communities we serve,” says the organization.
