Your hands can make a difference…
Our volunteers don’t just give a helping hand - they become the heart and soul of Habitat for Humanity. HFHSSMA urgently needs volunteers from all walks of life. We rely on our volunteers daily to help us carry out our vision of providing safe and affordable housing to hardworking families in our community. Whether you volunteer for a house build, in our administrative office, or at the Habitat Restore, your hands can really help. Please take a look at some of the volunteer positions for more information!
This contest is now closed; results will be posted as they become available. Thanks to all students who participated in this years Meaning of Home writing contest, and good luck!
Running from October 1 – November 9, 2013, the Meaning of Home contest challenges youth in Grades 4 -- 6 to write a short composition or poem that expresses what they "love" most about their home, with the winner receiving a $60,000 grant to direct to a Habitat affiliate of their choice. The winner also receives an iPad and a pizza party for their entire school. Additional prizes include five runner-up prizes of $5,000 grants directed to local Habitat builds, iPod Touches and classroom pizza parties.
For more information on the contest, submission details, please visit www.meaningofhome.ca.
All this is achieved through a collaborative effort, using an established and proven framework that details each phase of the build. Invest in our community through a Habitat for Humanity Sault Ste. Marie & Area build.
