San Diego Habitat for Humanity and Realty Income Corporation (Realty Income, NYSE: O), The Monthly Dividend Company®, came together recently to build better life stories for local hardworking families in need of improved housing.
Realty Income is one of only four S&P 500 companies headquartered in San Diego. The company is structured as a REIT, and its monthly dividends are supported by the cash flow from over 4,600 real estate properties owned under long-term lease agreements with regional and national commercial tenants.
Realty Income believes giving back is an extension of its mission to improve the lives of its shareholders, its employees, and their families. As such, Realty Income has a Corporate Responsibility Program which reflects its strong commitment to being a responsible corporate citizen and taking an active role in the betterment of the communities in which its employees and shareholders live and work.
“Through our Corporate Responsibility Program, we are pleased to once again work with San Diego Habitat for Humanity and honored to support the partner families,” said John P. Case, CEO of Realty Income. “We have had a significant presence in San Diego County since our company’s founding in 1969 and it is important to us to continue to impact our local community positively. The mission of Habitat for Humanity aligns well with the purpose of our charitable giving programs.”
Realty Income’s continued partnership with Habitat includes a donation of $100,000 and the hard work of 120 employee volunteers, the workforce of nearly the entire company, who helped install roofing, plant landscaping, build fences, and paint two homes in Imperial Beach as part of Habitat’s Neighborhood Revitalization efforts.
People in our community and all over the world partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. With our help, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability, and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.
This mission is possible through the financial and volunteer support of partners like Realty Income, and we are so grateful for their continued partnership.
