Frame the Future for Home Ownership with Habitat for Humanity
CONROE, TX –Volunteers and donors help to make home ownership a reality for families in our community by participating with Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County (Habitat MCTX). Volunteers physically raise the walls on the home site, plan fundraising events, or stock shelves and sort donations at ReStore. COVID protocols have modified sponsorship opportunities while also limiting volunteers who want to make a difference with Habitat MCTX.
To maintain opportunities for volunteer support Habitat MCTX has created a “Framing the Future” home sponsorship opportunity to lead up to Women Build Week in March. Habitat for Humanity International has granted funds for the local Women Build partnering with local Lowe’s Heroes. Lowe’s Heroes is a company wide employee volunteer program aimed at preventing unintentional home injuries. Lowe’s has contributed millions of dollars and countless hours of volunteer support to help build hundreds of homes across the country.
Purchase a beam for $100 each, decorate it, and use it to Build a Home. All women (and men) with their friends are encouraged to purchase a beam with family, co-workers, or groups, pick up the beam from the Habitat MCTX office in Conroe and bring them back decorated to add to the build.
The goal is to frame an entire home with donors. The approximate number of beams in a Habitat MCTX home is 250. Donors can sponsor an entire wall of beams for $1,500 which will include some exposure on their social media and in the e-newsletter. Beams will be available for pick up February 10 through March 2. On March 11, the Can-Do Crew will help Habitat MCTX build walls to be raised on March 13th. The Can-Do Crew are women volunteers engaged with Habitat MCTX on a Women Build, in the Habitat ReStore and on multiple special projects. We will engage this group on March 13th in celebration of Women Build Week.
Send in an image of your decorated beam to be shared on Habitat’s social media platforms though FB messenger or tag Habitat MCTX! Let us take your photo when you return the decorated beam. All of us can make a difference to those in our community to have a safe place to call home. Habitat MCTX believes that everyone deserves a decent and affordable place to call home.
