THE PLAYERS staff helps build a house for Beaches Habitat for Humanity


Last week, staff members of THE PLAYERS Championship traded in their clubs for tools to help build a Beaches Habitat for Humanity house.

The work on the home, which is located in the OceanGate neighborhood off Mayport Road, is part of a larger relationship that the PGA TOUR has with the organization. The house will go to a pre-qualified family in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity’s effort to eliminate substandard housing in the Jacksonville beaches area.

“Our team is excited to be out here working hard to play a part in bettering our community,” said Jared Rice, executive director of THE PLAYERS. “Each year the tournament generates millions of dollars for our community, but it is important for our staff to physically get out into the community to lend a hand to those in need.“

During the build, THE PLAYERS staff completed the subfloor and began building the walls on the house’s second level.

“Beaches Habitat for Humanity is beyond grateful for the PGA TOUR, specifically THE PLAYERS, for their support of our organization,” said Sarah Jared, community relations manager for Beaches Habitat. “The mission of Beaches Habitat is to eliminate substandard housing at the beaches, and accomplishing that mission would not be possible without the help of organizations in our community like the PGA TOUR.”
