The rapidly growing upstate New York chain Fastrac has given a whole new meaning to the term convenience store.

Volunteers from the store joined Flower City Habitat for Humanity to rebuild an abandoned Akron Street home for a Rochester family.


On Jan.27, Bank of America and volunteers along with Fastrac worked on the home's exterior siding and porches, while helping install insulation inside.

“Our company supports Flower City Habitat for Humanity for a very simple reason: We believe in everything the organization does to lift up the communities we operate in,” said Fastrac’s Director of Real Estate and Information Technology, Brett Hughes. “There’s no place we’d rather be.”

When construction of the home is completed, Fastrac will be apart of a dedication ceremony where the home's new family will be presented the keys.

Fastrac donated more than $60,000 to Habitat for Humanity efforts in New York state last year.
