Quarterly News
Here is your quarterly update on Habitat for Humanity of Snohomish County for July to September 2019.
Construction updates
Gold Bar 2 construction update
Work on our second single-family home in Gold Bar is progressing as planned. The main structure and roof are complete, with 75% of the exterior done as well. We just passed plumbing, electrical, framing, insulation and rough-in inspections. Exterior painting and drywall installation should be complete in October.
Special thanks to ISEC Construction for their generous $5,000 sponsorship toward our build, and to L&W Supply for donating the drywall to complete the Gold Bar home – and then some!

Twin Creeks Village master plan update
Twin Creeks Village, our 25-family neighborhood in Everett, is also coming along nicely. The city planning department gave us preliminary approval last week, allowing us to move forward with civil construction.

This stage of the project will have three phases, each 16 weeks long. Phases I and II are all about permitting and getting plans approved. In Phase III of civil construction we will begin the actual work, putting in the streets, electrical and water connections, and waste and stormwater systems.

Smokey Point Habitat Store now open!
Our third and newest Habitat Store had its Grand Opening celebration on September 7 th . Nearly 600 people attended! The Mayor of Smokey Point and members of the Stilly Valley Chamber of Commerce attended our ribbon-cutting ceremony. The first 50 customers received a swag bag, and 14 lucky winners received door prizes. We took in $5,400 in revenue just the first day! All Snohomish County Habitat Stores profits support our organization’s mission of building homes, community and hope.
Congratulations to our door prize winners: Duane Herzig, Kevin Drake, Nikki Medina, Kaitlyn Grant, Shirley Harwell, Sue Weiss, Anna Gavin, Lisa Wise, Melissa Graham and Brenda Dickinson. And congratulations to our social media vacation giveaway winner, Lilia Smith! Lastly, congratulations to our tile decorating contest winner, Heidi! Entrants were asked to draw what home looks like. Heidi's tile is pictured to the left.

The store is now open regular hours, Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., serving the Arlington and Smokey Point area and much of northern Snohomish County. If you are stopping by to drop off donated items, please be certain to arrive before 4:30 p.m.
Welcoming our new AmeriCorps member
Please welcome Aaron Olsen, our newest AmeriCorps member. He will be with us until August 2020. With a degree in communications and advertising, he has hit the ground running. In just two months, Aaron has already applied for $85,000 in grants for our organization! With his help we’ll be getting our corporate sponsorship program up and running, and we will transfer our data to a new database tool.
Help us build affordable homes!
We couldn’t do this work without you. Thank you for partnering with us on this journey.

With such a successful Grand Opening, we could really use additional donations at the Smokey Point location. Will you consider donating your gently used furniture, appliances or construction materials?

All proceeds from your donation help us fulfill our core mission of providing homeownership to families in need. Please call our material donations department at 425-405-7770 or email to learn more about items we accept or to schedule a pickup!

If you don’t have extra items at this time, please consider making an online donation now. Even a small donation of $20 goes a long way helping us provide better opportunities to our neighbors. With your help, we can provide more people with a decent and affordable place to call home.
