Project Raises Awareness For Homeownership Challenges Faced By Women
BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA – The Viera Company, along with A. Duda & Sons, Inc. and the Viera family of companies, announces its participation in the 2015 Brevard County Habitat for Humanity Women Build Project.
For the past few years, Cocoa Ranch (as part of Duda Ranches), a subsidiary of A. Duda & Sons, Inc. has donated sod for projects across Brevard County, this time for a home under construction in Port St. John.
“Donating to this project is a tangible way for our family of companies to make a lasting difference in the lives of families in our community who have earned an affordable, quality place to call home,” said Tracy Duda Chapman, Senior Vice President and General Counsel of A. Duda & Sons, Inc.
“Our volunteers enjoy a sense of accomplishment while having fun and building camaraderie each time we participate in the Women Build Project.”
The house in Port St. John has been under construction since January, and the sod is one of the final touches before a deserving family calls it home. A team from Cocoa Ranch will explain to volunteers, including many from the Viera family of companies, how to lay the sod.
“Nothing ties together the amenities of indoor living like beautiful outdoor spaces,” said Chris Leffler, Sod Farm Manager at Cocoa Ranch.
“We are delighted to play a role in the Women Build Project, providing green spaces for the entire family to enjoy.”
The mission of the Habitat for Humanity Women Build Project is to empower women by teaching them construction skills while building a new home for a deserving family.
This will be the sixth home built in Brevard County under the Women Build Project.
“Duda and The Viera Company have been perennial supporters of the Women Build project, providing sod and volunteers,” said Lisa Shoemaker, 2015 Women Build Team Co-Leader.
“We are very grateful for their contribution to this project as it makes a big difference in a lot of women’s lives.”
