Owner of Green Mountain Builders in Florida, Tony Persichilli leads a team that specializes in building and remodeling residential homes. Tony Persichilli also contributes to Habitat for Humanity.

Since its inception in 2009, Habitat for Humanity of Florida has invested more than $260 million each year in local communities. The funds have supported the construction of over 15,000 homes and paid real estate taxes, saving homeowners $10 million annually and 59.4 percent each month in expenses.

Habitat for Humanity relies on the generosity of the public to fund its programs. The organization accepts one-time cash donations and ongoing pledges. Donors can also donate a home or materials that can be used during build days or resold through ReStore. ReStore is a nonprofit home improvement store that sells discounted products to generate vital dollars benefiting Habitat for Humanity. Other welcomed forms of contributions include naming the organization as a beneficiary in an estate or will and donating appreciated stocks and bonds.
