We are very excited to begin a relationship with our
local Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County, MD,
Inc. and Habitat ReStore in Gaithersburg.
The best way to kick off this relationship is to show your support for World
Habitat Day and join Habitat for Humanity at Ten Thousand
Villages in the Row at Rockville Town Square, this Saturday,
October 2 from 5pm – 9pm. There will be a table with information
about how to advocate for affordable housing in our community,
volunteer opportunities and how to donate your new and gently
used furniture, antiques, appliances and building supplies to Habitat
ReStore. A portion of all purchases made from Ten Thousand Village
(a nonprofit fair trade store), that evening will be donated to Habitat for
Humanity of Montgomery County.
Everyone’s gotta eat!
Stop by Buffalo Wild Wings with your receipt from
Ten Thousand Villages or a flyer from Habitat’s table that evening and
they will also donate a portion of your
purchase to Habitat.
What is World Habitat Day?
The United Nations has designated the first Monday in October as
annual World Habitat Day. World Habitat Day 2010 will be held on October 4.
World Habitat Day’s purpose is to call attention to the current global
state of the human habitat and push toward adequate housing for all.
We hope that by raising awareness and advocating for universal decent
housing we can dismantle and alter the systems that reinforce and
entrench poverty housing. In doing so, we can make an affordable,
decent place to live a reality for all. World Habitat Day is a day for
grassroots action and a day for people to be united in their efforts
to eradicate poverty housing.
