Since 1988, Habitat for Humanity, North Central Massachsetts, has housed 72 families locally and globally. These efforts were made possible through a combination fo building and fundraising in north central Massachusetts.
Now, the local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity is set to celebrate 25 years of building decent, affordable homes in Acton, 24 additional communities, and across the globe.
Plans for celebrating this milestone include a breakfast with Liz Walker, an award-winning television journalist, documentary film producer and humanitarian, on March 21.
The breakfast will highlight the many affiliate accomplishments in the last 25 years.
Other plans for the year include completion of a record number of five homes, an expansion of rehabilitation projects for existing homeowners in need of handicap accessibility as well as a 25th anniversary dinner in the fall.
“We are very excited about celebrating our anniversary and know it’s a significant milestone to have reached,” Maggie Monroe-Cassel, executive director of Habitat for Humanity North Central Massachusetts, said in a release. “We have increased our building efforts in the last year to help more local families and have been encouraged by the generous support of our many corporate, individual and civic sponsors who share our vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.”
