Thank You
Dear Friends of Habitat Cabarrus,
We would like to thank you for your generous support in raising funds for this year’s Faith Build home. Your donation of almost $12,000 went such a long way in helping us to work towards meeting the fundraising goal of $50,000! Your donation will be matched dollar for dollar by Thrivent Financial provided we reach the $50,000 fundraising goal. We have received donations of a little over $45,000 to date, so we are almost there!
Habitat Cabarrus would also like to thank the First Presbyterian Church members that volunteered for the workday for the Faith Build home on June 16 th. The volunteers were so enthusiastic and their efforts helped us to move closer to the completion of the home for Zula and her family!
Habitat Cabarrus values our partnership with First Presbyterian Church and is very appreciative of your year round support. We could not do what we do for our community without partners like you!
