Golf “fore”…. Affordable Housing - You still have time to sign up to play in the third annual golf tournament held on Friday, May 25th at the Proctor Pittsford Country Club. All proceeds will be used to purchase building supplies for the home that Habitat for Humanity of Rutland County will start building in late spring on Griswold Avenue in Rutland.
The tournament is a 4 person scramble. Registration begins at 12 noon and the action begins at 1 p.m. If you do not enter with a team, you will be placed with other golfers. The entry fee is $90 per person and includes green fees, a cart, and a catered dinner. Checks can be made out to Habitat for Humanity of Rutland County and can be sent to 6 Court St, Rutland, VT 05701. Players can register on the day of the tournament. Click to download a registration form.
Thanks to the generosity of many area businesses and individuals, there will be many great prizes awarded. Topping the list are a Honda Accord, donated by Shearer Honda, and a lawn tractor donated by Townline Equipment; both awarded for a hole in one.
Getting a head start on a long spring weekend in May is a great way to celebrate the long awaited end of winter, to have a lot of fun, and to know that you are helping another area family to live in a home that they build with the help of many volunteers from our area. To register contact 802-747-7400 or write email@example.com.
Letter from Kim and Matt Johnson
"So. Moving in finally! These last few months have been a whirlwind of emotions. We have found strength within ourselves, and each other, we hadn't seen before. Now that we have moved into our home, we are trying to adjust and settle as best, and fast, as we can. It is still almost unreal that this is our home, not our rental. We have so many dreams for our family, it's unbelievable to be able to mark off owning our home on the list. We will be able to work on more of our dreams now that we are able to save some money and not put it into someone else's assets. We're putting it into ours. We don't think we could ever truly express our gratitude to everyone involved, who donated, volunteers, and those who were just supporting us throughout the process. We are looking forward to the many memories from sleepovers and cookouts to prom night and many more. A HUGE thank you to everyone who helped us to this point in our lives, whether big or small, we couldn't have done this without you. Thank you is not enough.” With love and gratitude,

Consider donating your used car to Habitat. HfHI will handle all the details. If you designate that you want the proceeds to come to our affiliate, the value of your gift will make a difference locally.
There are many ways, large and small, that people can make a difference. You do NOT need to be skilled as a carpenter. Think of Habitat as a small business that is entirely run by volunteers. We estimate that half of the hours contributed by volunteers are completed by people who never pound a single nail. If you admire Habitat's mission and want to have an impact locally, please contact us.
Donate to help us unlock futures. Our work has demonstrated time and again that Home is the Key. Your support helps us create strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter, which plays a key role in positively influencing a family’s education, health and financial stability.
Through housing we help our home buyers to gain greater strength, stability, and independence.
