Come join us and have a Brush with Kindness as UPC continues the partnership with Habitat For Humanity on Saturday, August 18th. We will depart the church at 7:00 a.m.
We need to be in Cheyenne on East 13th St by 8:00 a.m. and our shift ends with lunch provided by Habitat at 12:00 pm. We have spaces for 10 workers to join this effort. We will be continuing work at the same housing units we were at in May only this time we will be dry walling and/or painting.
I plan to drive and can take 5 people complete with coffee & donut deliciousness! Please RSVP to Sheri at UPCLaramiePastor@gmail.com with your interest.
"Habitat for Humanity is a perpetual miracle; everyone who receives, gives; and everyone who gives receives. If you want to live complacent and uninspired, stay away from Habitat; come close to Habitat and it will change you, and make you part of something that changes the world."-- Randall Wallace
Helping other is always a great way to give back to your community. Try thinking of others who can use a little help to make a lot of change. Habitat for Humanity has been making that change every year. Since its inception, Habitat for Humanity has helped to build more than 800,000 houses around the world providing safe, affordable shelter to so many people. The houses are built with donated materials by volunteers then are sold to qualified families with no profit. Each home is financed with affordable, no interest loans that can extend out over 30 years.
Habitat for Humanity is not a government agency and they accept no government funds for the construction of their houses. Their mission is to eradicate "Poverty housing and homelessness from the world, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action." In order to get a Habitat home, the future homeowner must agree to pay a down payment and make monthly mortgage payments. In addition, they must invest hundred of hours of their own time into building their Habitat house and the houses of others. Families in the program are chosen based on "their level of need, their willingness to become partners in the program and their ability to repay the no-interest loan." There is no discrimination based on religion or race. I hope you can join us!
