Happy Holidays 2018
As we celebrate the 12 days of Christmas this year, we look forward to the promise of new beginnings in 2019. In this new year, Beaches Habitat welcomes 12 families to its newest neighborhood, Haywood Estates II. As construction begins in Haywood Estates II, the final touches are being made in OceanGate which is home to 70 families. Happy beginnings and Christmas memories for our families are made possible by generous supporters like you.
It is in this spirit that we ask you to make an investment in the lives of those who are without a home to call their own. For the 15th year in a row, the family of Sandy Forsyth, founder of Aqua East Surf Shop, has generously pledged to match every dollar donated during the holiday season up to $25,000. That means every $1 you donate is worth $2 to Beaches Habitat and your contribution will have an even greater impact in our community, allowing more families to realize their full potential through home ownership.
Please help us meet and exceed this match with your donation to Beaches Habitat. Together we can provide a hand up, not a hand out, by empowering families with a foundation to create a better life and tools to build a promising future.
Recognizing that an enduring commitment to education has profoundly impacted Habitat homeowners and their families, Beaches Habitat continues to offer access to college scholarships, after-school tutoring, mentoring, and rewards for academic excellence to students in our Education Center. This year we are especially proud to share the artwork of one of our students on our annual Christmas card.
Your support and generosity have given the gift of hope and a home for the holidays to hundreds of beaches families over the past 28 years. With your help, more families will experience the joy of the holidays in their very own home.
From our Beaches Habitat for Humanity home to yours, may you enjoy a blessed Christmas season, the goodness of all the holidays and hope and prosperity in the New Year.
