BENEFITING: DuPage Habitat for Humanity
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2016
I have been participating in Habitat builds since I was a kid and love being able to serve families in my community this way. I have learned many skills that I am now able to use on my own house!
Habitat for Humanity helps communities get involved in building housing for those who need it, and those on the receiving end are involved in the building project as well. It is such an excellent opportunity for people to give to others using their skills and talents, and learning some new ones along the way, while meeting new people and meeting a need. The mother and son receiving this house we are building are so excited and hopeful to be moving there sometime this summer. Habitat homes are built by volunteers through donations of time, money, materials and labor. If you have never participated in a build, I highly encourage you to share in that experience sometime soon! Your donation provides a stable and affordable home for a family who would otherwise not be able to achieve that on their own, and I thank you so much for your gift and generous heart.
