The donation from Ashland United Methodist Church of St. Joseph was a part of Habitat’s “Build on Faith 2018” initiative.
St. Joseph Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Cate Manley said the donation will ultimately help St. Joseph families.
“(It) will help us to complete rehab and new build projects and put more St. Joseph families into safe and decent homeownership opportunities,” Manley said. “We are excited to grow our ministry partnerships and we appreciate the hard work ethic, reliable volunteers and incredible generosity that Ashland has shared with us.”
Family Selection Coordinator with Habitat Trina Deayon was part of getting the “Build on Faith” initiative started. Deayon said it was started with the goal of working to build a stronger relationship with local churches.
“Our mission is so that everybody has a safer place to live and one way to do that is to work together with the churches and see how strong we can become… just to make St. Joe a stronger, safer place to live,” Deayon said. “
