Happy Holidays from Habitat for Humanity for SLO County! Our thanks to all of you who have supported our mission and our work, and through your gifts – whether by cash donation, purchasing items from our ReStores, or volunteering on a build site or a ReStore – are ensuring that we are helping people stay in their homes or purchase a new home. You are supporting and empowering our belief that none of us live in dignity until all of us live in dignity by having a safe, warm, and secure place to live.
Recently, we received questions about letters that County residents have received from Habitat for Humanity International soliciting donations asking whether funds donated to Habitat International are used in our County. Because Habitat International will be running an advertisement on December 6th in The SLO Tribune soliciting donations, we wanted to be sure to answer this question before the advertisement appears.
If you are making or considering making a donation to Habitat for Humanity AND you wish the funds from your donation to be applied to Habitat’s work and programs currently active in San Luis Obispo County, please mail your donation to Habitat for Humanity for SLO County, P.O. Box 613, San Luis Obispo, CA 93406.
Those donors who wish to support the general operations, and international and US programs for Habitat for Humanity International should follow the donation information found in the advertisement or letter they have sent you. Your donation will support the overall operations of Habitat’s national office. The donation will not be used to specifically support our work in the County.
If you have any questions about the work and programs of Habitat for Humanity for SLO County or Habitat for Humanity International, please do not hesitate to contact us at 805-782-0687 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a wonderful holiday and a happy new year! Thank you again!
