You might have heard of Habitat for Humanity before so I have included a link to their site. They raise money to build homes. As a realtor, I feel that homeownership is very important.
This is what it says on their website...
"Habitat for Humanity International is founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat and its homeowner families have built or rehabilitated more than 400,000 houses. A nonprofit, nondenominational Christian housing ministry, Habitat invites people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build together in partnership." I have been volunteering for them and it is a really great organization.
There are several different ways you can help.
* You can help build the homes... even if you have no construction experience, there are things for you to help with - so don't let that stop you.
* You can volunteer in their "ReStore"... which is where they sell new and used donated building supplies to raise money for their projects.
* You can donate money... which is always needed.
It is a great way to help people in your community... give it a try.
