Tax Collector Mike Fasano’s five offices featured Habitat for Humanity as the charitable organization for the month of June (National Homeownership Month). All proceeds ($4,379.85) from the promotional effort benefit Habitat’s homebuilding and homeownership programs to help those without a home own one of their own. Currently 70 approved families are awaiting their opportunity to build a home through Habitat for Humanity.
“Homeownership has the power to transform lives,” comments Tax Collector Mike Fasano. “It was an honor for our office to support Habitat as they build affordable, safe and stable homes for hard-working families in our community.”
“The employees of the Pasco County Tax Collector’s Office encouraged everyone to give through this campaign and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results,” comments Crystal Lazar, President/ CEO of Habitat for East and Central Pasco. “Thank you all for your generosity.”
“As the cost of homes continues to rise, Habitat for Humanity is grateful for the support of the Pasco County Tax Collector’s Office to help us close the gap,” remarks Mark Sutton, President & CEO of Habitat for Humanity West Pasco. “We thank all those who participated in the National Homeownership Month campaign for the ‘hand up’ they provided to local, deserving families on their journey to affordable homeownership.”
Thank you to a very generous community for making this charitable-giving effort such a success! Staff members of the Pasco Tax Collector’s Office Land O’ Lakes branch represented the agency at the check presentation .
