DirectBuy of Fort Lauderdale Helps Habitat for Humanity Through Rain, Sleet, Snow or Hurricane
Fort Lauderdale, FL, October 28, 2008 --( It didn’t matter that they were in the midst of hurricane season nor did it matter that days earlier hurricane Ike threatened to make a destructive path through South Florida. The DirectBuy team of Fort Lauderdale didn’t back down from fulfilling the dreams of two families in Oakland Park, Florida.

On Monday, September 15, 2008, DirectBuy of Fort Lauderdale, in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity, worked to complete two kitchens and 4 bathrooms for the homes of TaMeisha Roberts and Aly and Kim Auguste.

Owners Max Eaton and Gail Sanchez-Eaton, donated the cabinetry while their expert kitchen designers Dave Nigro and Ron Bierley designed the layout and functionality of both kitchens and 4 bathrooms. With some extra help from the DirectBuy service team, the project was completed within 7 hours.

“I was proud to be a part of what Habitat for Humanity does for communities in need, says owner Max Eaton. Our contribution was a good fit with what we do at DirectBuy and we look forward to the opportunity to do it again.”

That type of generosity is fairly standard for DirectBuy. Showroom owners across North America donate to any number of organizations, and have shown a particular affinity for making contributions towards building homes for families across North America.

“I was honored to see my design used for such a worthy cause, said Nigro. “The sense of accomplishment was overwhelming once we saw the end result.”
