For the past eleven years the women of Pontotoc County have come together for the Women Build for Pontotoc County Habitat for Humanity.
Once again, this year we will join forces on May 4, 2019, in Circle of Hope Subdivision, on Unity Dr., to help another family have a safe, affordable home.
This will be an excellent opportunity for mothers and daughters, civic groups, Sunday School classes, employers, etc, to have a day of service to help give back to our community.
Activities will include interior painting, siding installation, or other activities that may be needed on that date. No previous construction skills are necessary. Trained individuals will be on site to instruct and assist with work.
We are looking for these volunteers for work on Saturday, May 4, beginning at 8:00 am. Lunch will be provided and work will conclude between 2:00 and 3:00 pm.
Since 2008, the first year of the Women Build, Pontotoc County Habitat for Humanity has assisted more than fifteen homeowners with repairs or construction of their homes.
If you would like to be a part of this annual event, please join us on Saturday morning, May 4, at 8:00 at Pontotoc County Habitat at 50 West Marion St, Pontotoc, MS. We will register and receive our assignments at this location and then move to the work site. If you have questions, please call 662-488-9090 for more information.
Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity began in 1976 as a grassroots effort on a community farm in southern Georgia. The Christian housing organization has since grown to become a leading global nonprofit working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in more than 70 countries.
Families and individuals in need of a hand up partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Through financial support, volunteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. Through shelter, we empower.
Pontotoc County Habitat for Humanity has been affiliated with Habitat for Humanity International since 1991.
