'Tis the Season for Habitat for Humanity

Old Colony Habitat for Humanity is looking forward to 2012!

Today is Christmas Day, and I sit in my warm home, knowing how lucky I am to have a place to call my own.

What are you doing today?  What is your life like?  Are you also blessed with the comfort of owning your own home?  If so, will you offer a hand to help a less-fortunate family in the area achieve the goal of home ownership in your town in the next year(s)?

We at Old Colony Habitat for Humanity can help you do just that.  One family at a time, one home at a time, one community at a time rallying around to help someone who just needs a hand up.  This is our mission, and we need your help.

Right now, we are planning to build two more decent and affordable homes in local towns in 2012.  We will need all the support you can give, from financial donations to that of your precious time to help build, or raise funds and/or awareness.  While everyone wants to build (there’s something so satisfying about hammering!), we really need more folks who know a lot about public relations and fundraising.

Our board meets every month at the First Baptist Church, 118 South Main Street, Attleboro, at 7 p.m., and the Build committee and the Fundraising/Public Relations committee also meet each month at the church.  If you would like to visit with us, please check our Web site for the dates and times: www.oldcolonyhabitat.org.  We’d love to meet you!

In the spirit of the season, thank you for all you have done and will do to help us and others in the coming year.
