TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Alabama head coach Nick Saban and his wife Terry, through Nick’s Kids Foundation, plan to build a 16th home in Tuscaloosa as a part of the 16 for 16 Project with Habitat for Humanity of Tuscaloosa.
Following the April 27, 2011, tornados that devastated Tuscaloosa, the Saban’s committed to building 13 homes to celebrate the 13 National Championships Alabama Football had won. As Alabama Football won two more National Championships in 2011 and 2012, the project grew to 15 for 15.
After a victory over Clemson on January 11, a 16th house will be built to honor Alabama Football’s 2015 National Championship. A special thanks to Nick’s Kids’ major contributors of the project, Mike Brunner, Farid Rafiee and David and Lynn Gwin who stepped up immediately after the victory to help build House No. 16.
On Friday December 11, Ms. Terry and Coach Saban honored 22 Tuscaloosa City Schools' Teachers with the Nick's Kids Teacher Excellence Awards. Chosen by their principal, each of these award recipients goes above and beyond each and every day to enrich and empower the children in our community.
This fall, Coach Saban and Ms. Terry along with Nick's Kids Foundation partnered with Beat Auburn Beat Hunger to fight hunger and poverty in West Alabama.
