About  Habitat for Humanity Las Vegas

Established in Clark
County in 1991, Habitat for Humanity Las Vegas is a not-for-profit organization that builds simple, decent, affordable housing with the help of volunteer labor
and donated time, materials and funds.  Each home is sold at no profit and with a no-interest mortgage to local working families who otherwise might be forced
to live in substandard housing.  These families contribute “sweat equity” by helping in the construction of their own homes. For more information, visit
www.habitatlasvegas.org.

 

In addition to meeting minimum and maximum income requirements, working families who qualify for the program must perform 300 hours of volunteer labor building Habitat homes,
including the one they will eventually purchase.  Habitat for Humanity Las Vegas is presently working to qualify 22 families for the Home Ownership program.  The
organization has acquired 20 building lots around the valley. Information about the next Home Ownership orientation is available on the organization’s website
www.habitatlasvegas.org, or by calling 702-638-6477.

 

 

About Floyd Mayweather

The best boxer of this era and without question the most talented Floyd Mayweather, an
undefeated seven-time world championship in five weight classes, has shown an
unprecedented mix of speed, power and natural instincts that has translated to a
professional record of 42 wins, 26 knockout and no losses.  His phenomenal
career, which has afforded him record-setting career earnings, has allowed him
to accomplish extraordinary things in and out of the ring.  Mayweather’s
philanthropic efforts and dedication to those people in need motivated him to
found the Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation (FMJF) in July of 2007.
Through his own efforts and those of the FMJF, Mayweather has been the driving
force behind large scale food drives, education giveaways for students in need
of school supplies, Toys for Tots collections during the holidays, and many
other ongoing financial donations to organizations in Las Vegas, in his hometown
of Grand Rapids, MI, and across the United States.
