Donate a Vehicle to Habitat
Did you know that the automobile is the most heavily recycled product? 94% of the metal in a car is recycled! When you donate a car to Cars for Homes™, Habitat’s car donation program, it is “recycled” to help families build homes.
By donating a car to Habitat’s Cars for Homes™ car donation program, you help your local Habitat for Humanity affiliate build houses in partnership with families in need of decent, affordable shelter.
It is quick and easy to donate cars, trucks, boats, RVs, motorcycles, construction equipment or other vehicles—running or not! Plus, when you donate your car, the automobile donation may be eligible for tax deduction purposes. (Consult the IRS or your tax adviser for details.)
Habitat for Humanity House Dedicated Sunday November 20th
On November 20, 2011 at 2:00 pm, Springfield/Eugene Habitat for Humanity representatives, Hamilton Construction representatives, Springfield City Mayor Christine Lundberg and Councilor Dave Ralston, Lowe’s representatives, other Habitat volunteers and, of course, the excited partner family gathered at 4859 A Street, Springfield to honor the hard work, the generous financial backing, and community support that made this home possible. The program dedicated Habitat’s eighth house in its 10-house subdivision.
Sabrina Scott and her 2 children—are eagerly moving into their new home in time for Thanksgiving. They have completed over 400 hours of “sweat equity” helping to build their home and the homes of other Habitat families. Sweat equity is one of the basic tenets of Habitat for Humanity. As with all Habitat partner families, they will make monthly payments on the zero-interest, no-profit mortgage.
“The dedication marks a new beginning filled with hope and realization of a dream for the Scott family,” said Don Griffin, Habitat executive director. “The many volunteers who built the home along with the sponsors, donors and other supporters who participated all recognize and celebrate the life changes this home will bring to the family and to our community.”
The build drew together well over 150 volunteer to donate their time and talent in building the home. A special Women Build Day sponsored by Lowe’s brought together area women, some experienced and others who were first time builders, displaying great enthusiasm, dedication, and a willingness to learn that made the construction site a great place to be. Among the builders that day were Jan Eliot, cartoonist and national spokesperson for Habitat Women Builds, mayors Christine Lundberg and Kitty Piercy, and Springfield School Superintendent Nancy Golden.
Springfield/Eugene Habitat for Humanity is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International working to help end poverty housing in the greater Springfield and Eugene community. Habitat is founded on Christian principles and works in partnership with God and people everywhere, from all walks of life, building safe, simple, decent, affordable houses for people in need.
