St. Petersburg, FL – April 5, 2016 – A young Marine Corp veteran whose main priority is to provide a safe place for him and his wife to raise their two daughters will make good on that goal when he receives the key to his new Habitat for Humanity home, which was sponsored by America II Electronics, Inc. On Wednesday evening, April 6th, America II Electronics CEO and founder Mike Galinski will present Breck Spanier and his wife, Taylor, with the key to their new St. Petersburg home.
After completing his military service in 2012 in California, Spanier relocated his family to Florida to be closer to family in the Tampa Bay area. He currently works as a mail carrier for the U.S. Postal Service in St. Petersburg while his wife pursues a Bachelor’s degree. The family of four has moved twice since relocating to the area, finding affordable and safe housing options to be challenging on a modest income.
“Having a stable, safe home to come to at the end of the day that we love and have built together will mean the world to our whole family,” said Spanier, who worked 350 sweat equity hours with his wife alongside dozens of Habitat for Humanity volunteers.
In addition to providing funding for the Spanier family home, America II Electronics also had many staff members volunteer more than 200 hours building the home since construction began in late January.
“At America II, we take corporate social responsibility very seriously,” said Mike Galinski, CEO and founder of America II Electronics in St. Petersburg. “Last year we created a new initiative called America II Cares where we aligned our core business values with the social and environmental efforts in our community. Through this program, we’re extremely proud to have partnered with Habitat for Humanity on our first home, and we look forward to working with them on future home construction projects throughout Pinellas County.”
Florida Representative Dwight Dudley and Pinellas County Commissioner Charlie Justice will participate in the dedication ceremony.
