MidCountry Bank has partnered with CRHFH to make this Veteran’s Build possible. In addition to a $50,000 up front donation, MidCountry Bank has generously offered to match all other donations up to $50,000. Local business owners are encouraged to “double their impact” with a financial donation to support our community and Veterans.

Habitat Happenings Newsletter August 2021

Here is the Habitat Happenings newsletter for August 2021.

We Have A New Trailer!

We are over the moon grateful to the IJ Burich foundation and what they have provided to CRHFH.

We wrote to the foundation about needing a new trailer to transport our building tools and supplies, our trailer we had was a 1997 and it does show its age.

We asked for $5,000.00 and with that said we would only purchase from a local business to keep the money local and to support a local business.

So we did receive the grant and we purchased a new trailer from B&B Sports, so it all went wonderfully well. We acknowledged the Bank with their logo on the trailer and are super excited to show it off.

COVID absolutely changed our ability to raise funds. Actually put us at a total standstill. Every event we do was cancelled. Hammer & Nails, Brat stands, Music in the Park, Parades, Barn Sale, Thanks for Giving etc.

About three years ago our Habitat trailer was broken into and all of out tools were stolen. It was the Burich foundation that stepped up and gave us the money to purchase news tools.

So what this foundation means to us is everything, it has continued to help us to follow our Mission: to provide safe, decent affordable homes to all.

We are so grateful for the IJ Burich Foundation for their support.

Habitat for Humanity International Women Build Week 2021

Today kicks off our Habitat for Humanity International Women Build Week. We are grateful for the support from Lowe’s of this program, since 2008. Lowe’s has committed over $7.1 million dollars in support of the nonprofit, impacting families worldwide. So in honor of Women Build week we are showing you a video of some simple DIY projects you can do in your own home for less.

COST OF HOME

A safe home. Nutritious food. Health care. Access to good schools. Reliable transportation. Which would you choose? One in 6 U.S. families are forced to make this decision every day, often paying more than half of their income on rent or a mortgage. In 2021 our McLeod County profile reveals that more than 3,400 families in McLeod County pay more than 30 percent of their income toward housing cost, putting them at risk of being unable to afford basic needs like food and medicine. This is unacceptable. Please join us to help in our efforts provide families safe, decent and affordable homes. Now more than ever, we must work together to make the #CostOFHome something we all can afford.
