2016 Hard Hat Breakfast
About This Event
Mackensie Alexander spent his first 7 years living in a trailer home, living in a community surrounded by fighting and crime. Life was hard and Mackensie's family needed a break. That's when they heard about Habitat for Humanity.
Although his parents spent long days working the fields trying to carve out a life for their kids, they still put in hundreds of hours working on their new home, a requirement of Habitat homeowners. But it was the break they needed.
Join us at our 2016 Hard Hat Breakfast and listen to Mackensie Alexander tell his story of how a hand up from Habitat helped him become a star a Clemson and a 2016 2nd round draft pick of the MN Vikings.

Event to Support Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity
Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity (LAHFH) is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. LAHFH is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all. We partner with local businesses, churches and volunteers to help build homes with qualifying families. Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Most importantly, partner families play a large role in the building of the home. They invest 250 hours of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes and the homes of others. They also make interest-free mortgage payments which go into a fund that is used to build more houses.

Unfortunately, the breakfast has been postponed, due to a change in the Vikings practice schedule. We will be rescheduling for some time later this fall. Sorry for the inconvenience.
