Habitat for Humanity Task Force
The goals of the task force are to support Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County with its primary focus to provide decent affordable housing for everyone; support the ReStore’s efforts to raise funds for the Habitat chapter; raise awareness in the congregation about the needs for affordable housing and to provide volunteer opportunities to support these goals.
35 Women Participated in Women Build on May 13, 2016 —
Interfaith Build Planned for April 2017
The Habitat Task Force is so thankful to the congregation and to the 35 women, nearly all UUs, who participated in the Habitat Women Build on May 13. We had a great day of installing siding and baseboard trim and helping finish two homes in the west side Trail View neighborhood. Rev. Mary Ann Macklin started our day with a wonderful devotion. Our team raised a total of $11,100, including funds raised by each team member, with generous donations of $1,705 from individual UUs who didn’t build, $300 from our bake sale, and $250 from the Women’s Alliance. Thanks!
Our task force and members of numerous other local faith communities are now planning an interfaith Habitat build, tentatively planned for next March. If you’d like to participate in the interfaith build, help raise funds and/or contribute baked goods, please contact Barb Berggoetz, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will contribute several thousands of dollars (amount to be determined) to the effort and will need male and female UUs to participate in the build. More details will come soon about this exciting interfaith effort. The task force will be holding bake sales to raise some funds for this build. Dates to be determined. If you’d like to participate in the interfaith build, help raise funds and/or contribute baked goods, please contact Barb Berggoetz, email@example.com.
