On Monday, Kyle Busch, members of his No. 18 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team at Joe Gibbs Racing, other personnel from JGR and employees and representatives from team sponsor M&Ms made up a 60-person team that assisted in building a home for a family in Charlotte through Habitat for Humanity.
“Charlotte has always been good to the NASCAR community – and especially to me and my teammates,” Busch said. “So it feels great to help two local families fulfill their dreams of homeownership. I encourage all race fans to join M&M’S in the effort to M’Prove America in their own hometowns, as there are few things in life as rewarding as helping a neighbor.”
Volunteering for the build was part of M&Ms “M’Prove America” campaign to assist with the construction of Habitat for Humanity Homes across the country. Through the campaign M&Ms is donating $500,000 to Habitat. Fans are also being encouraged to pledge their time to assist in the cause at mproveamerica.com. The hope is that fans and M&Ms associates put in a combined 25,000 hours of volunteer time with the organization.
