Why We Love Habitat for Humanity
As part of the real estate industry, our REALTORS® and staff know just how important adequate housing is, and how it affects our lives. We believe that everyone should have access to affordable housing, which is one of the reasons we believe in Habitat for Humanity. "Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all." Furthermore, Habitat for Humanity is "a hand up, not a hand out".
On May 7th, members from our office joined MWV Habitat for Humanity's Womens Build Day in Tamworth. Joined by members of the community, the women were able to completely frame all the exterior walls of the home, in just one day! Working alongside the future homeowner and community members was extremely rewarding. If you missed it, don't worry! Community members join together each Thursday to continue work on the home.
How else can you help? Shop! Habitat for Humanity hosts a few yard sales a year to help raise funds to purchase land and build houses. The next event is Friday June 3rd and Saturday June 4th at Attitash Bear Peak in Bartlett, New Hampshire. You may also donate household items for the Yard Sale!
Our REALTORS® and staff are very proud to be a part of a wonderful organization that truly helps our community members achieve home ownership. To learn more about MWV Habitat for Humanity, visit them online at http://www.mwv-habitat.org/
