Hip Hop 4 Habitat Aligns with Hip Hop Soda Shop to Build New Homes
This weekends Super Bowl game between the Arizona Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Steelers wont be the only thing promoting a spirit of celebration.
Hip Hop 4 Habitat will cap off more than a week of building homes for needy families by joining forces with the Hip Hop Soda shop to build what it calls the Champions house.
The two-week effort, which involves volunteers from the Tampa Bay, Florida Area, provides affordable housing for more than six families.
Construction of the Champions house will start at 6 a.m. Sunday (Feb. 1) at Renaissance Hotel Tampa, International Plaza.
A Habitat family will receive the completed home, which will be taken to the home state of the team that wins the Super Bowl.
Other project collaborators include Habitat for Humanity Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties as well as the NFL's Community Impact Program.
Hip Hop Soda Shop founder Brian Peters expressed his gratitude in working with the organizations as he labeled the collective effort as a platform for revitalizing the community,"
"We are taking a stance and playing our part in rebuilding this great country of ours, Peters said via a statement to AllHipHop.com. "This week we represent Hip-Hop in showing the world the contributions we can make in our communities and worldwide.
The Champions house is the second residence involving Hip Hop 4 Habitat.
The organization, whose first home was built last year in Detroit, is dedicated towards partnering with Habitat for Humanity international affiliates in an effort to encourage prominent Hip-Hop artists to use their influence and affluence to serve others and assist in building homes.
