2011 Charity Partner: Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold to those in need at no profit and with no interest charged. Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Partner families invest hundreds of hours of labor – ‘sweat equity’ – into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving fund, which is used to build more houses.
