Special Donation Opportunity at EconoFoods

Between Feb. 8 to 19, the SpartanNash Foundation is running a fundraising campaign to help end homelessness and build hope in communities where they have stores. EconoFoods will be participating here in Northfield! Anyone who makes a purchase, will have the opportunity to donate $1, $5 or $10 to Rice County Habitat for Humanity, and 100% of funds raised will go directly to our affiliate. You’ll even receive a page of coupons as a thank you. Please consider making a donation to Habitat if you shop at Econo in the near future.

Thanks to SpartanNash foundation for supporting our work and helping address the issue of affordable housing in our community!

Alexander House Dedication

THANKS to the 52 folks who attended the House Dedication for Judy Alexander and her family!  What a wonderful show of support for this great family.

The Alexander family is one of two Partner Families from Habitat’s 2016 build season. Judy Alexander has four children and is a Post Press Assistant Day Supervisor for Cannon Valley Printing. She’s lived in Northfield for 14 years.

Looking for 2017 Partner Families

Do you know someone who needs affordable housing? Admit it, you thought of someone who just might qualify but you don’t know “exactly” what their financial situation is. Our best Partner Families come to us because someone like you suggested Habitat to them. You don’t have to ask their financial situation, we’ll take care of that!

Here are the basics of who we’re looking for:
1. Those with a need for housing
2. Those with the ability to pay an affordable mortgage every month
3. Those willing to put in 350 hours of sweat equity
4. Those currently live and/or work in Rice County

If you know someone who could be a Partner Family, please refer them to us. There is more information here on our website under the Apply tab or they can call Dayna at 507.323.5167. We will build in Northfield/Dundas and Faribault in 2017. Thanks for helping us to spread the word!
