Fans can join Busch and M&M’S by pledging to volunteer their time and talents at Habitat for Humanity build sites across the country at www.mproveamerica.com. This year, M&M’S is encouraging its associates and fans to log an ambitious 1.5 million minutes – or 25,000 hours – of volunteer time with Habitat.
“Charlotte has always been good to the NASCAR community – and especially to me and my teammates,” said Kyle Busch. “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.”
In addition to encouraging fans to volunteer time, M&M’S is also making a donation of $500,000 to
Habitat for Humanity to fund the construction of Habitat homes in 2013. Later this month, M&M’S will also introduce specially marked M’Prove America packages of red, white and blue M&M’S® Brand Candies in stores nationwide.
The M&M’S M’Prove America campaign will also be on display during the Coca-Cola 600 on May 26 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway when Busch gets behind the wheel of a special No. 18 M&M’S M’Prove America Toyota.
