We are messengers of HOPE. A hope that everyone in our community will have a decent, safe, and affordable place to call HOME.
Right now you can help a family in the Coulee Region without picking up a hammer! We are looking for 100 local businesses to display Habitat for Humanity House of Hope Boards throughout the months of March and April to raise funds and awareness for families in need in our community. It’s easy to do, there is no financial commitment, and you’ll be helping us move families from substandard housing into safe, decent, and affordable homes of their own.
Who: Any business in the community
What: Host a House of Hope Board
- Each board comes with instructions, a collection box, signage, and colored markers.
When: The timeline for House of Hope Board Hosting is March-May.
- Boards will be ready for pick-up or delivery by February 26th, 2018.
- The board will be at your place of business from approximately March 1, 2018 – May 1, 2018.
- Boards will be picked-up or returned to the ReStore the first week of May 2018.
Where: A public area in your business
2×4 boards are displayed at Host locations throughout the community. Each Host is given a collection box and signage. Members, customers, and employees of the Hosts who wish to support Habitat for Humanity-La Crosse Area sign their name on the Board and make a donation.
All the money raised will be used to help build a home that is designated House of Hope.
House of Hope Boards have historically been used to help build a new home in the Coulee Region. This year we are partnering with the Humane Society to not only help the humans in our community but also the human’s furry friends. Like in the past, after the House of Hope Boards are picked up, the money raised will be used to help fund more Habitat homes. The difference this year is that the boards will be used to build dog houses! These dog houses will be sponsored and customized by local businesses, then will be part of a larger community art contest, “Woofs and Roofs,” before being sold at the ReStore to help fund Habitat for Humanity and the Humane Society.
