Nissan North America announced this week it would continue its partnership with Habitat for Humanity with a $1 million donation, bringing the total the company has contributed to the nonprofit to over $15 million since 2005.

Five Nissan TITAN trucks and two Nissan NV high-roof cargo vans produced at the Canton plant were included in the donation.

“Nissan’s mission is to enrich people’s lives, so we value our partnership with Habitat for Humanity because it helps to build sustainable communities in the areas where our employees live and work,” Rebecca Vest, Nissan’s VP of corporate development and social responsibility, stated in a release. “Our employees look forward to working alongside future homeowners as they build their homes. The work is enriching for those families and for our employees as they make memories that will last a lifetime.”

Officials say the majority of the money will go towards local chapters, including the Habitat for Humanity Mississippi Capital Area in Jackson, which will receive money to build a home in 2018.

“The generous donation from Nissan and the volunteers who continue to work alongside those in need of decent housing makes such a difference in the lives of families and communities,” Colleen Finn Ridenhour, senior vice president of development for HFH, said. “We are extremely grateful to have a partner like Nissan who shares our commitment to build sustainable communities.”
