ABC Fine Wine crew members lift spirits of Habitat partner families in Citrus Community Build Day

A dozen crew members from ABC Fine Wine & Spirits throughout central Florida came together Thursday, May 2, to lift a helping hand and the spirits of partner families with Habitat for Humanity of Citrus County (HFHCC).

Working alongside partner families, core volunteers and HFHCC construction employees, the employees from ABC Fine Wine & Spirits joined forces to work on a pair of future Habitat homes at HFHCC’s Citrus Springs development to participate in a Community Build Day.

The dozen employees from ABC Fine Wine & Spirits contributed 58 hours of work, equating to a little more than seven days of work toward completion of two HFHCC homes.

“The mission of ABC Fine Wine & Spirits is to make everyday celebrations better in every community we serve and that includes getting out of our stores and offices to volunteer and give back,” said Sean Kelly, executive vice president of ABC Fine Wine & Spirits. “We’ve challenged our team members to find ways to lift people up in our communities and it’s a privilege to partner Habitat for Humanity and join them in building a home for a family.”

It’s partnerships such as this with civic organizations and businesses that make the pathway to home ownership come one step closer to reality, said Justin Leech, Chief Operating Officer with HFHCC.

“The ABC Fine Wine & Spirits team did a tremendous job helping to build Habitat homes and we thank them for being our partner and supporting our mission to provide attainable housing in Citrus County,” Leech said.
