This is a story we love to see and share! Park Place Dealerships in North Texas is continuing its ongoing efforts to support the community and its latest project is teaming up with Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity to build a new home for a North Texas family.

The big project kicked off on October 7th and will take about 10 weeks. It’s one of Park Place’s largest community relations projects ever undertaken at one time in the company’s 33-year history.

The new home will be the 11th volunteer-home built by the Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity this year.

“Park Place has significantly invested in supporting our community and empowering our members to improve the quality of life in the communities where we do business,” said Tony Carimi, managing director of Park Place Dealerships. “This is the first time we have embarked on a project this large so that our members throughout the company have the opportunity to work together on a single charitable initiative. It is exciting to know we will help create a home that will bring joy to a family for many years to come.”

The build is no small task. 160 volunteers from Park Place Dealerships are expected to contribute approximately 1000 hours on its construction over the course of the project. You can follow the key build dates here.

“Affordable housing is a significant challenge in Dallas,” said Anam Ali Hashambhai, marketing director for Park Place Dealerships. “By providing a family with an opportunity to own their home, we are making our community a stronger and a better place for everyone. It’s an exciting time for the family, Park Place members and Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity. We are all committed to building a better Dallas as we transform families.”

Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity

Dallas Area Habitat serves families with an average annual income of $40,000. The non-profit organization built 54 new homes in 2019 and this year expects to complete 38 new homes, despite the global pandemic, with an estimated contributed property tax base of $4 million total over its 34-year history.

Park Place Cares

The Park Place Cares program supports more than 300 organizations around the Dallas-Fort Worth area throughout the year. Park Place’s 1,400 members are further challenged to volunteer their time and resources to serve local communities. To follow Park Place Dealerships’ build of the Habitat for Humanity home, visit
