Posted on by HabitatAdmin

6 AM SEPTEMBER 19TH – 6 PM SEPTEMBER 20TH

Last year, The Amazing Raise raised over $630,000 for 270 local nonprofits. You can make 2012 even bigger by joining this unique “giving challenge.”

Richmond Metropolitan Habitat for Humanity is taking part in this year’s Amazing Raise!  Your $50 donation can help us do so much to help hardworking families achieve the dream of homeownership.

 

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS

The organization with the most unique donations of $50 or more at the end of 36 hours wins a $20,000 grant. But with over $100,000 up for grabs, your gift can really go a long way.  Gifts must be given through the GiveRichmond.org website between September 19th and September 20th in order to qualify.

Be sure to stay tuned for more information about the Amazing Raise and how you can help support Richmond Metropolitan Habitat for Humanity!

Morris Family House Dedication!

Posted on by HabitatAdmin

On June 26th we held the dedication for the home of Rosemary Morris!  Rosemary, a mother and grandmother, celebrated her dedication with several of her friends and family members, as well as Habitat staff, board members and volunteers.

Rosemary’s home is a historic home built in the 1920’s in North Church Hill.  It was abandoned and completely run down.  Richmond Habitat, in partnership with the City of Richmond and the Neighborhood Stabilization Program, completely rehabbed the home and made it look brand new!

We are so happy for Rosemary and so excited for her new journey as a homeowner!
