Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley – How You Can Help Habitat Today
It has been a roller coaster ride of events and emotions for all of us this past few weeks, hasn’t it? I am sitting at my dining room table, feeling the tug between wanting to send out a message of hope and managing my own valid emotions of sadness, fear, and concern for our community. It is a lot to process. At Habitat, we are trying to carefully manage resources, so that we can continue the positive impact we have made by helping local families realize and sustain homeownership.
The COVID-19 outbreak is harming those served by Habitat; those who already needed help to secure & maintain safe, stable, and affordable housing. Like all of you, we have had to dramatically change how we outreach to our community members in need, and we struggle to provide services. New applicants are left in a state of limbo, the elderly and Veterans who need safe home improvement updates are on hold, and home building is slowed.
If you are able, can you send a special gift today to ensure we can maintain our operations during this difficult time ?
This pandemic has highlighted the necessity of the people in positions at the forefront of the crisis, many of whom are Habitat partners. Our clients are nurses, service industry workers, cashiers, garbage collectors. Some are having their wages cut or eliminated, others are working twice as much to keep us safe. All of us need to do what we can to support one another, where we can.
These families are going to need our hand up now more than ever. And now more than ever, our work will require all of us, together. You can help us help these families, our communities, and our neighbors prevail. Stronger, together, and with your support.
During this time of instability you can provide stability and help by making a gift to Habitat.
Your inquiries on how you can help have uplifted and inspired us. Together we can support local families through safe, healthy, and stable housing. If you were planning to volunteer, shop at the ReStore, or partner with us please consider including Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley when you generously give to support our community.
We are looking at every way possible to continue our support of local families who are relying on us. We know the effects of this will be felt for months to come, by everyone.
Thank you for your continued support during this difficult time for all. We have seen the impact a united community can have for our neighbors in need of healthy living conditions. We know we are stronger together.
We are grateful for you,
