Genworth is once again sponsoring the Meaning of Home Writing Contest for grades 4-6.
Students can enter at www.meaningofhome.ca individually or teachers may submit on behalf of their students. This year Genworth is accepting video submissions as well! Students can submit poems, short stories or essays.
Every entry gets a $5 donation to our affiliate, and students have the chance to win prizes like an iPod Touch, a pizza party for their school, several $5,000 grants for their local Habitat and the Grand Prize winner can designate a $60,000 grant to the affiliate of their choice, as well as having the chance to see their work published and professionally illustrated.

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!
