On a recent warm weekend, the Mattox family partnered with Habitat Hillsborough and volunteers from Crown Castle to spruce up their home by landscaping, painting, and reconstructing their front porch. Veola Mattox and her son Jacquari Mattox, residents of the Port Tampa community, contributed “sweat equity” as they partnered with volunteers from Crown Castle to complete the critical home repairs and beautification.
Thirteen volunteers from Crown Castle, one of the nation’s largest providers of shared wireless infrastructure, assisted in the completion of the Mattox Home Preservation. Bob Meyer a long time Habitat volunteer took the lead on the construction of the front porch while Habitat Hillsborough’s Home Preservation Coordinator Jeremy Cooke lead the rest of the group to paint and add new landscaping. Expenses for the project were funded through the generosity of Crown Castle.
This year, in addition to building thirteen new homes in partnership with eligible homeowner applicants, Habitat Hillsborough is scheduled to serve thirty low-income residents through the Home Preservation program.
