Monadnock Habitat for Humanity, an organization I've been involved with for a few years, is doing a fall "Take A Hike" to raise money for our next build in Troy, NH. We have purchased a plot of land and are due to break ground in the spring of 2015. What better way to raise money for this project than to sponsor my 4 year old son Connor on his first ascent of Monadnock?!
I'm sure most of you are familiar with Habitat for Humanity. Our chapter builds low cost, quality homes for low income families in the Monadnock Region, using 100% private donations. Our partner family is required to invest 200 hours of "sweat equity" into their home, and will make monthly mortgage payments on a no interest loan. We keep building costs down by using donated materials and volunteer skilled labor. Truly, every dollar makes a difference.
If anyone would like to join us on November 1st let me know. It's a great time of year to hike "America's Favorite Mountain!"
