Business Highlight – Marty Chiropractic

Marty ChiropracticSince 2008 Marty Chiropractic in Burnsville has held an annual fundraiser to benefit Rice County Habitat. They set aside one day and ask all their patients to give a donation instead of making a payment. Since 2008 this fundraiser has contributed over $10,000 to help build simple, decent and affordable homes. Thanks Marty Chiropractic!


Tell your employees about Habitat!

You may have employees who may qualify for our program.  We’re asking you to help us in getting information to your employees.  You don’t have to ask any questions, you don’t have to know the specifics of our program, you don’t have to worry about giving out right or wrong information – all we’re asking is that you do any or all of the following:

  1. Include THIS THIRD OF A PAGE FLYER in the paystub envelope to your employees, or any other communication mechanism you have with them.
  1. Hang THIS POSTER up in a prominent location where employees will see.
  1. Would a brochure stand work better? Do you want one of these?
  1. If appropriate, provide a time for Dayna, the Executive Director, to come and talk with interested employees about Habitat. This could be:
    • A “lunch and learn” – where during a lunch period Dayna comes and share about Habitat
    • During an all staff meeting Dayna could come
  1. Sometimes employers have HR folks who do know the housing situations of their employees. In that case, that HR person could set up a meeting with that employee and Dayna to discuss Habitat.

Rice County Habitat works to partner with people to build safe, decent and affordable homes.  We believe that stable housing leads to stable communities and families.  We believe that stable housing leads to stable employees which benefit your business/organization.
