Empower Network Makes $10,000 Donation

July 16, 2013

SAINT PETERSBURG, Fla. Empower Network donated $10,000 to Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County.

Empower Network can make an impact in the community that is more than fluff and hype we can truly make a difference for people,” said Empower Network Co-founder and President David Sharpe. “Let’s go out there and make a difference.” The donation is the beginning of an anticipated long-term partnership between Empower Network and Habitat for Humanity.

Sharpe and his co-founder, Dave Wood, both of whom experienced homelessness prior to founding Empower Network, relate to those benefiting from Habitat for Humanity’s social programs and services.

“Let’s actually take our message, our experience, our potential, our skill sets, our stories, and use them to help other people overcome the challenges impacting and affecting them,” said Sharpe. Empower Network’s passion for philanthropy does not end in St. Petersburg. The company is also partnering with Habitat chapters across the globe.
