2017 Thrivent Build
A group fundraising campaign for Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity.
About This Campaign
The 2017 Thrivent Build will be located in south Moorhead and built in partnership with Angela, Tony and their 4 kids. They are a great family who have volunteered to help us build homes for other families in the past. Now it is their turn for a fantastic hand up in life. Join us in helping us build them a safe and healthy home they can be proud of.
The plan is in place, but we need YOU to help us complete the fundraising goal so we can get this home built. Thrivent Financial will be generously providing 1/2 of the cost of this home. Please donate today and help us raise the other 1/2. If you'd like to set up your own fundraising campaign for this build, click the participate button to the right.
There are still a few volunteer slots to fill. If you are interested, visit http://bit.ly/FMHFH.

Campaign 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.
