Huntingburg— Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County (HFHDC) will be kicking off its nineteenth home and “Building Homes, Building Community” campaign September 25 at 3:00 PM at Market Street Park in Huntingburg. This free and public event will feature guest speakers and staff discussing the importance of shelter in our county and how Habitat is meeting the challenge. The public will also meet the newest partner family and hear the positive impact this home will provide for their family.
“The Building Homes, Building Community campaign will provide crucial funding for the current home build, and future homes as well. Sponsors will receive a wooden board to put messages on, logos or decorate as they wish. These boards will then be collected and used in the current Habitat home in Dubois County. There will also be a free board available for everyone to sign at the Campaign Kick-Off Event. Those that would like to sponsor at different levels can do so at the kickoff but can also donate throughout the fall campaign if you can’t attend our kickoff. Affordable housing is one of the most pressing needs in our region, and we are asking our community to join us to address the issue,” remarked Executive Director Michael Richard.
This will also be an opportunity to meet other individuals and businesses in Dubois County that want to make a difference. The kickoff event will be streamed live on the Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County Facebook page at facebook.com/DuboisHabitat as well.
Those that wish to support Dubois County Habitat can donate online at duboishabitat.org/donate. A full sponsorship guide that details levels of support that individuals and businesses can provide is also online at the page.
