WINTER 2012

It takes a great deal of money to build a home. Although we get many in-kind donations from local and national businesses and excellent volunteer support, it still takes a great amount of money for us to provide a decent affordable home for someone in our area. For our build in Troy, NH, this past Summer, we received major donations locally from Markem-Image and The Bean Foundation, and nationally from the Timken Foundation of Canton, Ohio. These gifts pushed us over our fund raising goal and we were able to build a home on Lot 1B on Dort Street in Troy, adjacent to the home we built two years ago. Now we are looking forward to our next build.

This past year, Clark Mortenson Insurance and Financial Services in Keene adopted Monadnock Habitat for Humanity as their “Charity of Choice”. Throughout the year they raised over $ 1,500.00 for our affiliate! This included several fund raisers including a “Like Us” campaign on Facebook, donations for a “Jeans Day” at work and a generous donation of a 70/30 split of a raffle held at their Winter Party. But they didn’t just donate money! They donated an Energy Star gas dryer for the home, fully staffed two days of hard work at the site from their employees and their team that participated in our annual Hike Monadnock climb raised nearly $ 500.00. This kind of full throttle support from one of our local businesses was most gratifying. We encourage other businesses in our area to consider a similar campaign and to join us in our next build.

We also appreciate donations of any amount from members of the community. If you would like to help us raise funds to build another home click on this DONATIONS link to make a fast, secure donation. It’s easy, and you’ll feel gratified to help such a great cause! We appreciate ALL donations.
