Be a part of giving Tuesday with Habitat



This year, on Tuesday, December 1, 2015, Habitat for Humanity North Shore is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world. And here on the North Shore, we will be honoring the volunteers and donors who give so much to us everyday all year by posting photographs of our volunteers and acknowledging their contributions on facebook, Twitter and Instagram throughout the day.

We invite you to join us and the #Giving Tuesday movement on December 1st by posting your own photographs and writing or tweeting about your volunteer experiences with Habitat for Humanity.

Here are just a few of the ways that you can GIVE on TUESDAY:

1. Use the hashtag #GivingTuesday to talk about Habitat for Humanity North Shore and our vision of a “A world where everyone has a decent place to live…”

2. Return to our worksite and bring a family member or a friend. We are currently working in Ipswich every Wednesday and Saturday. Register online at www.habitatforhumanity-northshore.com.

3. Encourage your workplace to participate in a Team Build. The Team Build experience is an opportunity for businesses, churches and school groups to help us fulfill our mission while we help them to further theirs by bringing their employees and club members together on our build sites

4. Donate if you can. Whether your contribution is $5, $500, or $5000, your gift will purchase building materials and essential services from licensed contractors when volunteers and gifts in kind are not available.

5. Donate your car, motorcycle, or boat through the “Cars for Homes” program. When you donate a car, motorcycle, boat, or other vehicle to Habitat for Humanity’s Cars for Homes program you help people in on the North Shore build house and the hope of a better life!

6. Localize #GivingTuesday for your town, city, or state. We rely on North Shore towns and cities to identify individuals in need of assistance and properties that are potential build sites. By raising awareness of Habitat for Humanity in your town or city, you help us fulfill our mission and build homes for those in need.

Join us on December 1st. We’re building a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

HELP BUILD IT!

Habitat for Humanity North Shore would like to thank civic leaders, community businesses and volunteers for their enthusiastic support of all of the 2015 Women Build events.

LOWE’S, C. White Marine, inc. AND ENDICOTT COLLEGE FUNDED ONE OR MORE OF THE EVENTS.

Krista Van Tassel, Vice President of Community Development and Communications at Wells Fargo, Congressman Seth Moulton, Senator Joan Lovely, Representative Leah Cole, Ipswich Selectman Judy Field, and Assistant Director of Planning Susan Fletcher visited the build sites, toured the homes, met with the homeowners and thanked volunteers. local business woman, Gayla Bartlett President of the Danvers Kiwanis Club, and Sharon Thomas of First Church Congregational spoke at various locations and participated in one or more of the builds.

Habitat homeowners like Tina Lloyd of Lynn, Gislene Hart and Ouma Diallo of Peabody, Daniela Martinez of Danvers, and Paula Ruelle of Ipswich spoke to the volunteers and eloquently described the difference that a Habitat home is making in their lives and the lives of family members.

Local retailers like Bertucci’s, BJ’s, Santoro’s, Shaw’s Starbucks, Stop and Shop and Trader Joe’s provided food and drink. And Local non-profits like North Shore Elder Services and Ascension Memorial Church in Ipswich provided tables, chairs and all kinds of support.

The success of every Women Build, like the success of every home we build, requires broad-based community support. Habitat for Humanity North Shore is very grateful for the broad-based community support that we receive.
