Thrivent Choice Dollars Program

We are pleased to announce that Habitat for Humanity HiawathaLand is now enrolled in Thrivent Financial’s Thrivent Choice® program. By directing Choice Dollars®, eligible Thrivent members can recommend which nonprofit organizations they feel should receive charitable grant funding from Thrivent. If you have Choice Dollars available to direct, please consider directing them to HFH HiawathaLand.  We plan to use Thrivent Choice grant funding to purchase supplies for our “Paint the Town” Campaign this summer in our communities.  To learn more about Thrivent Choice, visit Thrivent.com/thriventchoice. Or call Thrivent at 800-847-4836, and say “Thrivent Choice” when prompted.  To learn more about the HFHH “Paint the Town” project, please call our office at 906-341-7437, or visit our “About Habitat” page and read the “Paint the Town” guidelines download.

Habitat for Humanity HiawathaLand and Lowe’s invite women to join Habitat’s 10th annual National Women Build Week

HFHH is one of 300 Habitat affiliates nationwide hosting Women Build projects during the week leading up to Mother’s Day with support from Lowe’s, a longtime partner in the event.  On May 12th, 2017 local volunteers will kick off our 2017 summer projects with our Women Build event.

This year, Lowe’s will contribute nearly $2 million to National Women Build Week. Since its partnership began in 2003, Lowe’s has committed more than $63 million to Habitat and helped nearly 6,500 families improve their living conditions.

No construction skills are necessary to participate in this year’s project. Pre-registration is required.  Lunch and a Women Build T-Shirt will be provided.  To volunteer or donate, call 341-7437.  For more information on National Women Build Week, visit Habitat.org/wb

Thank you….

volunteersWe are at the end of our 2016 Construction Season! There are many people who have made this possible and deserve recognition for making this another successful year at Habitat. We would like to take a moment to thank several groups of people who are involved in making it possible for us to host the Volunteer Groups that come to serve Habitat and our community. To the coordinators who I communicate with for weeks or months before a group arrives to make sure all of the details and paperwork for the week are well covered. To the leaders who take charge of the groups and help to keep everyone focused, on track and safe. To our construction team who provides the scope of work for these projects to give us a starting point for taking on these big jobs. To our construction supervisors who spend hours preparing for the groups by breaking the jobs down into smaller tasks, making sure we have the materials and tools for the job, and working alongside them all week, often teaching them new skills. And finally, thank you to those who have donated the houses that we have been, or will be, working on. These donations enable our program to continue. It has been our most successful building season so far. We already have ten groups reserved for 2017 and seven groups for 2018.
