3-11-18: Habitat For Humanity King County, March 20th Fundraiser. www.habitatskc.org

Gail Luxemberg is the CEO of Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County and provides a good overview of the work of Habitat in collaborative work with lower income families to build their own home. There’s a good deal of education that accompanies the actual building so that the new home owners have a good awareness of how to deal with mortgages, maintenance, as well as leadership. Maclovia Varner, an Army Vet, just moved into her new home a month ago and is ecstatic about have this permanent home for her 2 children. She speaks to the 250 sweat equity hours she was required to do, and it’s inspired her to want to continue to be involved and mentor new families joining Habitat. And this is an opportunity for all of us to participate in creating stronger community in our area. A major fundraiser is the Luncheon on Tuesday March 20 at the Washington State Convention Center at noon. Registration is required, and can be done at the website. In addition, Volunteers are always needed, as well as financial donations throughout the year. www.habitatskc.org
