Dixon Village home to benefit a local Gaston County family

BELMONT, North Carolina, September 22, 2023 – Piedmont Lithium (“Piedmont” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: PLL; ASX: PLL), a leading global supplier of lithium resources critical to the U.S. electric vehicle supply chain, today announced its participation in a build day event as part of its $150,000 gift to Habitat for Humanity of Gaston County (“Habitat Gaston”). The donation is helping to fund the construction of a new home in Dixon Village for a local Gaston County family.

Piedmont Lithium Chief Administrative Officer Kris McVey said the Company has been excited to take part in the building process with Habitat Gaston since presenting its gift last year.

“Our donation to help build this home represents our single, largest philanthropic contribution to date and illustrates the strength of the family-focused culture we are working to build at Piedmont Lithium,” McVey explained. “Today, several of our employees came out to pour their time, hearts, and energy into this extraordinary effort and give the gift of homeownership to a deserving local family. I was both humbled and proud to see our employees in action, extending our culture into the community, and we look forward to volunteering again as construction progresses.”

Lisa Quisenberry, Habitat Gaston Interim Executive Director, added, “We are grateful for Piedmont Lithium as their gift and volunteer service helps to make the dream of homeownership a reality for a hardworking Habitat Gaston family. Affordable homeownership offers an opportunity to build a better future, and together, we are constructing more than just a house – we are generating hope, stability, and a stronger tomorrow. With the strength and self-assurance made possible by home ownership, Habitat Gaston families can advance their health, their children, their dreams, and their lives to a brighter future!”

Dixon Village is a developing neighborhood in Belmont, offering an innovative approach to providing affordable housing. The development is designed to be a closely-knit community that builds connections and encourages interactions, bringing together families of diverse incomes, cultural backgrounds, occupations, and ages.

Founded in 1988, Habitat Gaston is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. The organization provides affordable homeownership opportunities for qualified, low-to-moderate income families and individuals in Gaston County and has built more than 120 homes since 1988.
