Candy Cane Campaign:
This holiday season, you can make hope a reality for more low-income families in the Ozarks. With your help, we will give a hand up – not a hand out – to another hardworking family in need.
Goal: $7,500 raised by December 31, 2017
Before we know it, we’ll be gathering together again with friends, family, and loved ones to celebrate the holidays. Especially at this time of year, we give thanks for all that we have accomplished because of your generous and loyal support.
You helped bring strength, stability and self-reliance to families in need of a safe place to live – as they partner with us to achieve a dream they never thought possible…they became homeowners. Just imagine the joy of families like the Taylor’s (pictured) feel as they spend the holiday season in their very own homes. You made that possible.
This holiday season, please don’t forget there are still many families who are in need of a safe and affordable place to live. Join us to raise $7,500 by December 31, 2017 with the Candy Cane Campaign.
Meet the Taylor Family:
Lyndsay Taylor had little hope of ever owning her own home. She worked hard, but barely made enough to afford a one-bedroom apartment for her and her three kids, Oliver, Mila and Selma.
“Every time I felt like I would start to get ahead, one of my kids would get sick, or my car would need a repair and it would set us right back,” said Lyndsay “I was tired and I was losing hope.”
Fortunately, Lyndsay heard about Habitat for Humanity. She applied and was accepted into the homebuying program based on her need and willingness to partner in our program. That’s right – we offer families a hand up, not a hand out.
Each family invests hundreds of hours of sweat equity to help build their home. And when construction is complete, they make affordable mortgage payments that we use to build and repair more homes for families in need!
As you think about being “home for the holidays” this year, will you help ensure that more families like the Taylor’s have a decent and affordable place to live?
Donate to the Candy Cane Campaign:
Your gift of $25, $50, $100 or more will give another family the opportunity to build and buy their own Habitat home this holiday season! When you support the Candy Cane Campaign, you will give a gift they’ll never forget…a place to call home.
Thank you for helping homeowners achieve strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.
