In November 2018, Christoph Real Estate Group and Daryl Robbins, Notary Public came together to invest $5,000 cash in support of our 2018 Matching Donation Campaign. We had under 40 days to rally the community to reach that goal so we could raise $10,000 before January 31st.
Well, the generosity of our supporters on the North Island completely exceeded our expectations. In addition to $5,000.00 from our sponsors, supporters like you donated $15,207.75 towards this campaign! We are so grateful to everyone who contributed. You know that it takes much more than $10,000 to build these homes, and you came through to show your support for affordable homeownership. From our staff, sponsors, volunteers, and homeowner families: THANK YOU!
Donations = $15,207.75
Sponsor match = $5,000.00
Total raised = $20,207.75
We also want to thank the congregation at St. George’s United Church. They passed the pot for Habitat at their Christmas Eve service and raised $2,425.85 towards this campaign.
Proceeds from this campaign will support our two current affordable housing projects: an 11-unit build on 477 Hilchey Road in Campbell River and a 10-unit build on 1330 Lake Trail Road in Courtenay.
This is the most ambitious period in our (almost) 15-year history, and we still need further support. Volunteer in our ReStores or on our construction sites, or become a monthly donor to help provide a consistent source of income so we can give more local families a hand-up through affordable homeownership.
