♥ ABOUT HABITAT FOR HUMANITY ♥
“Habitat for Humanity’s vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live and makes the dream of homeownership a reality for hardworking low-to-moderate income families in our community. Homebuyers help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. This affordable housing provides a generational change for families – and results in improved educational opportunities and improved family health. Contributions to this event will help provide roofs, kitchens, and doors for Habitat homebuyers.” www.glensfallshabitat.org
