Hard Hat Breakfast

Habitat is climbing on the bandwagon this Spring and is hosting what has become a very successful fundraiser for other Habitats in the State.  On Tuesday, May 21st from 7:15 a.m. – 9:00 a.m., we’ll be serving up a free breakfast buffet for attendees wanting to:

·         connect with like-minded individuals

·         learn more about our work at Habitat

·         meet Habitat homeowners and volunteers

·         discover how they can help deserving families secure decent and affordable housing

Our keynote speaker will be Sheri Allen—the retiring superintendent from Mankato Area School District—who has served as the superintendent in Mankato for 10 years. Ms. Allen is an avid advocate for healthy youth and safe and stable housing. Joining her on the program will be one of our Habitat homeowners—Abby Martin—who will tell her heartfelt story of her and her children’s lives before and after securing a Habitat home.

     

For more information on attending our inaugural Hard Hat Breakfast, please call Dawn at 507-388-2081 extension 4. She’ll be sure to reserve you a seat at the table!

Hoffman Home Dedication

Our first home dedication of the season was held this past Thursday in Nicollet at the home of Chris and Heather Hoffmann. It was a heart-warming event for the family of six, their friends, their relatives, and the staff of Habitat. Blessings and prayers were shared as were four quilts that were made by two churches–Christ the King in Mankato and Madelia Presbyterian Church–which were given to each of the four children. The donor of the land also presented Chris and Heather with a yummy cookbook and her best wishes for the family. The family is extremely appreciative and thrilled to be moving into their own home! Join us in wishing them the very best.
