Local eateries are teaming up with United Way to raise funds for more than 30 non-profit partner programs vital to those in need in Montgomery, Stewart and Houston counties.
On Thursday, March 7 dine at one of the places listed below and a portion of your check will be donated to local programs through the United Way.
All partner programs benefiting from these funds work to accomplish United Way’s mission to improve the health, education and financial stability of friends, families and coworkers in the Clarksville area.
Participating locations include:
Wednesday, March 20 is the first day of spring and to help you prepare, the Clarksville ReStore is holding a Spring Cleaning Donation Drive.
Beginning Monday, March 18 through Friday, March 22 we will have extra volunteers ready to accept your donations at our Madison St. location.
Check back for more details and if you would like to schedule a pickup before the Spring Cleaning Drive, contact us through this link.
Your donations help build affordable homes right here in Clarksville and keep Montgomery County greener by reducing waste in the county landfill.
More than 30 years ago, the United Nations General Assembly took an important step in promoting the idea that everyone deserves a decent place to live by declaring that the first Monday in October would be World Habitat Day.
Every year Habitat for Humanity joins our partners around the world to rededicate ourselves to recognizing the basic right of everyone to adequate shelter. Habitat for Humanity asks everyone to join together as one global network in communicating the message that every one of us deserves the opportunity for a better future, and that a decent place to live can remove barriers to opportunity, health and success that might have been part of a family’s life for years, and in many cases for generations.
Join us for World Habitat Day and year round by lifting your voice to help people in need of decent and affordable housing. Learn how you can take action through volunteering.
2019 marks a major milestone for Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County, our 100th home.
The site has been selected and we will announce additional details on the project by summer.
As we look ahead to 2020, our vision includes expanding our community of volunteers and home sponsors.
“A company can have enormous impact by sponsoring a home,” said Habitat President Kevin Underwood.
A new home build sponsorship is $25,000 and covers the cost of labor and materials necessary to build a home.
“A new home improves health, leads to improved grades for children and reduces dependency on government assistance,” said Underwood.
The following breakdown shows how a partial sponsorship contributes to helping a Clarksville family into a decent, affordable home through Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County:
Interior millwork/doors: $1500
For information on how your company can get involved in home sponsorship call our Affiliate Office at (931) 645-4222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
#angelsofkindnessBe Kind CampaignHabitat for Humanity Montgomery County
The ‘Be Kind’ yard signs popping up around town are helping Habitat build affordable homes in Clarksville.
The campaign was started by Immaculate Conception School as a way to spread a positive message and help several local nonprofit groups, including Habitat for Humanity.
The signs read ‘BE KIND,’ in big bold letters along with the hashtag #angelsofkindness.
The signs sell for $10 each with proceeds going to Habitat, The Food Initiative, Tender Paws Animal Therapy of Clarksville, SAFE: Soldiers and Families Embraced, and Clarksville Urban Ministries’ Safe Place.
“We’re grateful to be included among the organizations benefiting from such a positive movement,” said Habitat President Kevin Underwood.
“We’re all stronger when we work together and I’m especially grateful for the people of Clarksville that will reap the benefits of this through these great organizations.” Underwood said.
Signs are available for purchase from Immaculate Conception School (1901 Madison St.) Monday through Friday, between 8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.
