Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles Announces Annual Adopt-A-Family Holiday Program
Funds will Provide Gift Baskets to 40 Hardworking, Low-income Partner Families this Holiday Season
Los Angeles, CA – November 19, 2013: The Adopt-A-Family Holiday Program is making the holidays a little brighter for some of the families served through the Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (HFH GLA) Homeownership and Home Repair Programs. These families are low to very low-income, in many cases earning less than half of the average median income in Los Angeles County, and have partnered with HFH GLA. This year’s participants consist of over 100 children, senior citizens, disabled, veteran and military families. A donation of $250 will sponsor an entire family; however a monetary or gift card donation of any amount will help HFH GLA spread holiday cheer. All donations are tax deductible and must be received by December 2, 2013.
“We are so proud of our partner homeowners who have worked so hard to purchase or repair their homes and who continue to give back and pay it forward with us as volunteers,” said Erin Rank, President and CEO. “The Adopt-A-Family Holiday Program will make a huge difference in the lives of these families. Together with your donation, we will be able to bring joy to over 40 hardworking, low-income families this holiday season.”
Celebrate the season of giving by making a donation and/or fundraising with friends, family, and co-workers to adopt one or more HFH GLA partner families. Click here now to donate.
HFH GLA partners with hardworking low-income, first time homebuyers, who agree to pay back a zero-interest mortgage and contribute 200-500 hours of sweat equity building or renovating Habitat homes. HFH GLA also helps low-income homeowners restore and maintain their homes through its Home Repair Program. The Adopt-A-Family Holiday Program provides an opportunity to engage the community to celebrate these accomplishments during the holiday season.
