To the editor:
On behalf of
Habitat for Humanity of Logan County, we’d like to thank our
community for the support we have enjoyed for over 30 years. We
believe that Habitat is a great way to give back to a community that
has been so generous in many different ways.
Habitat's worldwide mission is to help provide decent affordable
housing to people who work hard. Our recipients work hard on the
home that they help build and work hard to pay for it through a no
interest loan provided by our local Habitat affiliate. The stability
provided to a family through homeownership benefits that family in
many ways but also the neighborhoods in which they live.
We celebrated 30 years of service to Logan County last November as
we are building and have rehabbed our 26th and 27th homes. The goal
is to continue building/rehabbing at least one home each year. A
partnership with Lincoln Community High School’s building trades
program has also been a great benefit to both parties and made it
possible to do two houses this year. Homes have been built in
Lincoln, Mt. Pulaski, Atlanta, and Emden.
These homes are funded through the mortgage payments of recipients,
proceeds from our second hand store located at 909 Woodlawn Road,
and generous donations from local businesses, churches, charities,
[to top of second column in this letter]
Your donations to the store and shopping for items
such as furniture, appliances, home improvement supplies, etc. help
us to continue with our mission. As with most things, costs for
construction have increased considerably so we appreciate cash
donations as well.
If you are able, we would very much appreciate
donations directed to Habitat at:
Habitat for Humanity of Logan County
PO Box 704,
Lincoln, IL 62656.
With your help and that of our tremendous
volunteers, we hope to continue creating an avenue for homeownership
for many years to come.
God’s Blessings to all,
