      Houston County Habitat Veterans Build Charity Gala

      Back by popular demand! Houson County Habitat for Humanity presents the Third Annual Veterans Build Charity Gala Get ready for a concert which will have you "Dancing through the Decades" featuring the Grammy award winning Macon Pops orchestra band! The beautiful and talented TV/radio personality Mary Therese Grabowski-Griffin returns to emcee this semi-formal event to celebrate our veterans. Join us for a delicious dinner, cash bar, door prizes, 50/50 raffle and more!     Veteran poverty should be unimaginable, but sadly, it is an unpleasant fact today. There is a growing housing crisis. 1 in 6 Georgia households spend more than half of their income on housing and nearly 4 million of our veterans pay at least 30 percent of their income toward rent or mortgage, while more than 1.5 million pay at least 50 percent.  We’re asking the community to take the pledge in helping to secure reliable and affordable housing options for veterans. A commitment to supporting our nations heroes is more than a one-time decision. It’s an active, ongoing effort to help them complete their next mission in civilian life. Habitat for Humanity, individuals, companies, and community organizations all have a role to play in their success. As you can imagine, using half of your income to pay your rent or mortgage is an enormous strain on any budget. Every day, more and more families find themselves in a struggle to keep a decent roof over their heads. Caught in punishing cycles of unpredictable rent increases, overcrowded conditions, or lack of access to land and affordable financing, these families live with a constant burden of uncertainty, stress and fear. Your generous donation will help Habitat for Humanity reach its financial goal for new construction and repairs. While we can never do enough to show appreciation to our nations veterans, through your gift, we can strengthen and build sustainable communities, improving the lives of veterans in Houston County. Thank you in advance for helping to honor and build for men and women that serve! Tables are limited and selling fast! Reserve your tickets TODAY!
