As participants enjoy making their dinners, Habitat MCTX invites the community to focus on the importance of having a safe and decent place to call home and to create memories. The organization recently launched the “What does home mean to you?” campaign. The campaign invites us to reflect on the things that make our homes beautiful and special and invest in Habitat’s vision to see a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

“We are so excited to bring our community together to share a meal and help families in need,” said Michele Shifflett, Advancement Officer at Habitat MCTX. “Our auction features unique ReStore items and packages like what you would have found at our Building Hope Gala that was cancelled due to the start of the pandemic. Thank you to our incredible volunteers and donors for making our Bountiful Harvest event possible.”
