Employees will volunteer to build homes to celebrate the company’s 75th anniversary.

Atlanta-based Pennington, a seed and lawn care company, will celebrate its 75th anniversary of business by partnering with Habitat for Humanity International to help build a home alongside volunteers and a future Habitat family in Greene County, Georgia. Company volunteers will also hold Habitat build days in other areas of the country where Pennington has facilities including Benton County, Arizona; Salem, Oregon; Cornelius, North Carolina; and Springfield, Missouri.

“The strength of our company comes from honesty, integrity, quality and people,” says Sonny Pennington, son of the founder and current member of parent company Central Garden and Pet’s board of directors. “We are so thankful that we have been able to put these values to work for Habitat homeowners through our partnership, especially during a significant year in our company’s history.”

Pennington and Habitat believe in providing homeowners with access to decent, safe and affordable homes. This partnership will pave the way for Habitat families to build strength, stability and independence in their new homes.

“We are grateful to have Pennington join us as a new partner,” says Julie Laird Davis, vice president of corporate partnerships and cause marketing at Habitat for Humanity International. “They are celebrating their 75th year in business by empowering Habitat homeowners to gain access to affordable home ownership with sweat equity and volunteer support.”
