San Diego Habitat for Humanity (SDHFH) and Realty Income Corporation (Realty Income, NYSE: O) came together in December, 2015 to build better life stories for local hardworking families in need.
Realty Income is one of only four S&P 500 companies headquartered in San Diego. The company is dedicated to providing shareholders with dependable monthly dividends that are supported by the cash flow from approximately 4,500 real estate properties owned under long-term lease agreements with regional and national commercial tenants.
Realty Income believes giving back is an extension of its mission to improve the lives of its shareholders, its employees, and their families. As such, Realty Income has a Corporate Social Responsibility Program which reflects its strong commitment to being a responsible corporate citizen and taking an active role in the betterment of the communities in which its employees and shareholders live and work.
The partnership with SDHFH includes a donation of $125,000 and the hard work of 120 employee volunteers, including Chief Executive Officer of Realty Income, John P. Case, who helped install siding, roofing, permeable pavers, paint, plant landscaping, and build fencing at the final two homes of Habitat’s Foundation Lane Community in El Cajon. In addition to the financial donation that will help purchase homebuilding materials, Realty Income surprised six SDHFH partner families with gift cards for use to purchase furnishings for their new homes.
This donation places Realty Income as SDHFH’s second largest sponsor in 2015.
“Through our Corporate Social Responsibility Program, we are pleased to work with San Diego Habitat for Humanity and honored to support the partner families,” said John P. Case, CEO of Realty Income. “We have had a significant presence in San Diego County since our company’s founding in 1969 and it is important to us to continue to impact our local community positively. The mission of Habitat for Humanity aligns well with the purpose of our charitable giving programs this year.”
“Working alongside partner families, volunteers and generous sponsors, Habitat for Humanity builds modest, safe, affordable housing for local families in need,” said Lori Holt Pfeiler, president and CEO at San Diego Habitat for Humanity. “This mission is possible because of the financial and volunteer support of generous and community-minded companies like Realty Income, and we are so grateful for the partnership.”
