Geocachers Navigate Brighter Futures for Local Families-
Hunt that Builds Homes Raises $10,000 for Habitat for Humanity’s Core Build Program
The hunt was on for local geocaching teams at the 2nd annual HabiCache…The Hunt That Builds Homes. On Saturday July 5th 15 teams set out to explore our beautiful city in search of hidden caches of all shapes and sizes. Teams collectively raised $3,370 in pledges- combined with sponsorships and event day revenue a total of $10,137 was raised in support of Habitat’s Core Build Program. These funds will be used towards the construction of two new Habitat Homes in the spring of 2015, offering a hand up to affordable homeownership for more local families.
“This event has been so much fun to coordinate and the teams bring a contagious enthusiasm to this event” said Amie Woods, Communications, Marketing & Fund Development Manager at Habitat for Humanity Sault Ste Marie & Area. “The geocaching community in Sault Ste Marie are a dedicated group and did a great job of raising pledges. Sara & Joe Beaulieu of Joe’s Clockwork Computers are seasoned geocachers and have done a top notch job of developing and placing our caches for the past two years, we are so lucky to have worked with them. Our community partners did a great job of making this event special for all in attendance, and the kids and adults alike had a great time”.
Little Diggers, Big Success-
Equipment World Raises over $4,000 for local Habitat for Humanity Build with Family Fun Day
The sun was shining, the BBQ sizzling, and the sounds of happy children filled the air. Equipment World’s Little Diggers Day was a roaring success, bringing joy to children and raising $4,125 in support of Habitat for Humanity’s Core Build program in Sault Ste Marie.
The giant sandbox was a favorite with kids, as were the little diggers and Freddy the Forklift Driver. Kristi Cistaro of Stork & Bundle was onsite, selling toy dump trucks and hand diggers with proceeds being donated to Habitat. Home Depot taught eager little builders to construct their own tool boxes and the Sault Public Library engaged kids with stories during their onsite membership drive. From the toy construction hats to the Bouncy Castle the fun was non- stop.
