BENEFITING: Habitat for Humanity International, Inc.
The grad class of Okanagan Mission Secondary School has partnered with Habitat for Humanity to raise money to build homes for families in need all over the world. People in our community live very privileged lives and it's hard to see how many families need our help. There are nearly 2 billion people around the world who live in slum housing and more than 100 million are homeless. Habitat helps by building or renovating simple, decent houses in partnership with those in need. Families left homeless by natural disasters, war and civil unrest often face dire housing situations as they struggle to rebuild their lives. Habitat for Humanity provides shelter and housing assistance to help these families recover.
