Habitat for humanity looking for help raising funds

By  | 

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (HFH) Habitat for Humanity of Laramie County announced a short-term fundraising campaign to benefit its home preservation program for local low-income homeowners. The campaign seeks to raise $3,000 for a matching grant provided by First Presbyterian Church in Cheyenne.

The grant is provided by the church’s Men on a Mission. To receive the grant, Habitat for Humanity of Laramie County must raise an equal amount. The campaign will benefit A Brush With Kindness, a home preservation program helping low-income homeowners in Laramie County who struggle to maintain the exterior of their homes.

“To receive the grant dollars, we must raise $3,000 on our own,” said Habitat for Humanity of Laramie County Executive Director Kate Wright. “To do that, we’re launching a campaign on Crowdrise and asking our generous residents to contribute so we can continue to do good work for our neighbors whose homes need a little sprucing up.”

To support the campaign, visit Crowdrise.com and search Habitat for Humanity of Laramie County.

“We’ve received so much positive feedback on the impact A Brush With Kindness has here,” Wright explained. “This program helps boost neighborhood pride for both the homeowners and the volunteers who do that work. It also helps fulfill the Habitat for Humanity vision, that everyone deserves a decent place to live.”
