MarineMax employees complete Habitat for Humanity house


On June 4, Habitat for Humanity and MarineMax presented Heather Cameron and her two daughters, Rylie (16) and Sydney (15), with the keys to their new home. MarineMax staff, volunteering hundreds of hours, have helped build the three-bedroom home in the Tampa Bay area since the groundbreaking in January.

“We are honored to have been working alongside Heather, the new homeowner, for the past few months, to help make her dreams come true,” said Brett McGill, MarineMax CEO, in a statement. “She has worked hard and earned this opportunity.”

Cameron thanked all the volunteers from MarineMax, with a special note of thanks to site supervisor Ron Gaines.

“This has been the most rewarding experience. It has taken two years to complete the transformation, and I have learned so much along the way,” said Cameron in the statement. “I am overwhelmed with gratitude. For my girls and me to be able to call this home, forever, is so rewarding.”

McGill said MarineMax would continue to work with Habitat for Humanity on future projects.
