Habitat for Humanity helping Harvey response

After many natural disasters, Habitat for Humanity is there.

After the first-responders and initial wave of clean-up crews leave the area, Habitat for Humanity is there.

After the flood waters recede, the storms die down, the winds stop blowing, the fires stop burning, Habitat for Humanity is there.

So long as there is still work to be done, Habitat for Humanity is there.

The rains of Hurricane Harvey have officially arrived in Kentucky, and as we look out at our rain-soaked bluegrass our thoughts are of the devastation still left behind in Texas.

Today, we challenge our fellow Kentuckians to fight back against Harvey.

On Saturday, Sept. 2, 100 percent of all purchases made at the Madison and Clark County ReStore in Richmond (up to $2,500) will go directly to our sister Habitat affiliates who will begin the work of rebuilding lives, homes, and communities across SE Texas.

We will also be collecting donations of like-new construction materials that are easily shipped and accepting monetary donations.

These contributions will help put a dry roof over the heads of a Texas family who will be seeking to re-establish the place they call home.

Please visit the ReStore on Saturday to show our family, friends, and neighbors in Texas that Kentucky is standing with them!

For more information please contact Habitat for Humanity by calling 859-625-9208 or 859-353-5556.
