Dedication – Toliver and Wood

On December 21st, 2015, the Wood and Toliver families’ homes were dedicated. Pastor Jeff Huber of the First United Methodist Church and Pastor Randall provided the blessings of each new home. Friends, donors and volunteers joined in celebrating the completion of two new homes into affordable housing in La Plata County! We are so blessed by all the hands and hearts that made this possible—from those attending our build days with labor and donors with financial support to attendees, businesses contributors at our fundraisers. Our huge extended family encompasses Board members, ReStore shoppers and ReStore donors. On behalf of all our Partner Families, thank you! See you in 2016!

Mercury Payment Thank You Day

Habitat 2-1

We enjoyed a brisk 9° day in appreciation of our new ReStore International Truck which Mercury, A Vantiv Company, provided funds toward. Habitat Board members, ReStore staff and core volunteers served baked goods, coffee and hot apple cider to employees at Mercury on Jan. 14th.

Many departments of Mercury worked alongside our mission on the Bayfield job sites in 2015 providing additional labor. We are thankful for their continued commitment to our community through affordable housing support.

Larry Drury, Chief Marketing Director and Ken Tallman of mercury, A Vantiv Company received our warm thanks. First National Bank of Durango graciously financed the loan which Mercury committed to fund over several years. In December 2015, the ReStore truck was completely paid!

Our ReStore provides monies that assist our mission in funding our annual builds. Purchases and donations generate homes! Please check out our new truck on the streets in La Plata County and become aware of our hard working community supporting the urgent housing crisis.

Colorado Gives Day – December 9th, 2014

 

Colorado Gives Day 2014Give where you live on Colorado Gives Day, December 9, 2014.

Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving.

Donations for Habitat for Humanity La Plata County are accepted through www.ColoradoGives.org.

For the first time ever, Colorado Gives Day features a $1 million Incentive Fund, one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country. Every nonprofit receiving a donation on Colorado Gives Day receives a portion of the Incentive Fund, which increases the value of EVERY dollar donated.

For example, if Habitat for Humanity La Plata County receives 10 percent of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, we would receive 10 percent of the $1 million Incentive Fund.

So tell your friends and make sure to donate to HFHLPC on Colorado Gives Day.

Can’t wait until Colorado Gives Day? As of Nov. 1, 2014, donations can be scheduled ahead of time.
