The holiday season is a great time to reflect on the bounty of our lives. And when it comes to making the warm, fuzzy feeling last as long as possible, giving back to the community is the way to make it happen. The Dorchester County Habitat for Humanity is gearing up for another year of The Angel Tree Program, a special way to ensure neighbors in our area have hope for a home. According to Resource Development and Marketing Director Moriah Hollander, donations to Dorchester Habitat throughout this holiday season are a gift that keeps on giving.
Habitat for Humanity
The changing season always inspires us to change up things in our lives and in our homes. Now that the weather is cooling off just a bit, it can make us think about shopping for cozy new items that reflect our tastes. The good news is, there’s a way to breathe fresh air into your household decor without breaking the bank – and while feeling great about giving back to your own community.
Once upon a time in 1993, a passionate group of local volunteers felt called to take on the important task of helping their neighbors. That group eventually became the Dorchester Habitat for Humanity, and their mission still rings true in 2018 –“Putting God’s Love Into Action by Bringing People Together Building Homes and Hope.”
Winter is almost over! Even those of us who appreciate winter for its better characteristics (like the excuse to eat comfort food or cozy up next to the fire) are secretly ready to get everything cleaned out and organized. Between Christmas, snow days and tax paperwork, the task can feel overwhelming – but it doesn’t have to!
We’ve all heard about the great work Habitat for Humanity does for communities around the world. But how much do you actually know about the organization?
For example, did you know that there’s a Habitat affiliate right here in Dorchester County? Since 1993, Dorchester Habitat for Humanity has been “Building Homes and Hope” with the help of an inspiring community of volunteers. Here are a few other facts and fictions you should know about our local Habitat for Humanity chapter.
