As the Executive Director for Jackson County Habitat for Humanity, I would like to send well wishes to you and your loved ones on behalf of myself, the staff, and the Board of Directors as we approach the end of 2020. To those I have met and to those I have yet to meet, I would like to extend my gratitude on behalf of JCHFH for the contributions you have made towards our non-profit and community in the past. From gifts with unique gift ideas, monetary donations to volunteer hours on construction builds and beyond, we have been able to collectively impact nearly two dozen families in the twenty plus years we have served our Jackson County neighbors.
I would like to highlight our recent success wherein Tyeshia Butts and her children were able to move into their new home this past October free from the indecent conditions of their previous residence. It is thanks to YOU that we are able to serve the people we do on a daily, weekly, and yearly basis. As a non-profit working to provide decent and affordable housing, we recognize that we are all connected, most especially in times of crisis. I ask that you consider supporting our mission once again by purchasing Home Sweet Home raffle tickets from https://jacksoncountyhabitat.ourraffle.org/. You can also buy Home Sweet Home raffle tickets at our ReStore located at 661 S. Elm Street in Commerce. If physically picking up prizes in our Commerce, GA location poses an obstacle, I ask that you consider monetary donations through https://jacksoncountyhfh.org/donate/ as well as sharing these links with your families and friends and asking them to support our partner families in becoming homeowners. Increased participation is more important than a singular dollar amount and we appreciate your support over the years. To build a completed home, it costs upwards of $94,000, which is primarily funded by your generosity. Due to COVID-19, most of our fundraising for 2021 and our next home build is through this Home Sweet Home raffle campaign. We need your support today to continue working towards our mission and vision of a better future tomorrow.
I look forward to the day that we can physically gather once again as a community and am immensely appreciative of your support thus far. Let us end this year knowing that we can serve our neighbors in our Jackson County community.
