Washington, NY, April 22, 2019 – The NPD
Group today announced its partnership with Habitat for Humanity in Nassau County NY, an affiliate of the nonprofit organization Habitat for Humanity International, which helps people in communities around the world build a place they can call home. NPD will be the main Corporate Sponsor in building a home near the company’s Port Washington headquarters, in Great Neck, New York.
Construction is now officially underway as NPD and Habitat for Humanity in Nassau County kicked off their partnership at this morning’s Groundbreaking Ceremony. The event was attended by local Nassau County elected officials, NPD executives, and Habitat for Humanity board members. In the coming weeks, dozens of NPD employees will volunteer their time to bring the architectural plans to life and create a place to call home for a family in need.
“NPD was founded on Long Island, our headquarters for over 50 years, and throughout this time we have been committed to giving back to our community,” said Karyn Schoenbart, NPD’s Chief Executive Officer. “We are thrilled to partner with Habitat for Humanity on this important mission to improve our neighborhoods and the lives of the people within them.”
“As we have done for over 27 years, Habitat Nassau County’s goal is to inspire hope for families in need by building strength, stability, and self-reliance through helping them obtain their own home, usually for the first time in their lives,” said Myrnissa Stone-Sumair, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity in Nassau County. “We are excited today to celebrate groundbreaking with our partner, The NPD Group, and acknowledge their generous sponsorship gift and commitment to supply over 1,000 volunteer man-hours in support of our life-changing work at our latest construction project in Great Neck, New York.”
