If you send Christmas cards to your family and friends during the holiday season, there is a way you can help to raise money for the Tewksbury Habitat for Humanity project.
The Habitat Build Committee is offering to print custom gift cards to those wishing to make a donation (or purchase an item) in someone’s name for Christmas.
The effort is part of a drive to raise $50,000 by the time construction begins in the spring on the Habitat for Humanity home to be built at 110 State St.
Cards will be custom printed with recipient and donor name. You have your choice of a wreath or snowman version.
You also have your choice of monetary donation in any amount ($25 min) or select an item for the house (like a window or a door).
Visit the web site at http://www.tewksburyhabitatbuild.org/habitat-for-the-holidays to check out the cards and to place an order. There is also a printable order form attached to this story as a PDF.
What are some other ways you can help?
According to project organizers, the Tewksbury Habitat Committee welcomes local businesses to print and distribute copies of the hard copy Christmas Card order form to their customers. The committee is also seeking to connect with local contractors willing to offer labor or materials for the actual construction project. And of course, the committee is seeking business leaders and individuals wishing to support the project financially.
A $5,000 donation secures a spot on the build site signage for your logo (and also recognition on website as a key sponsor)
The Tewksbury Habitat for Humanity project is off to a flying start in terms of organization and support. 102 members of the community attended the Information Night on Nov. 14 at Tewksbury Congregational Church. The project Facebook page is already up to 160 "likes" and growing every day.
Those wishing to be on the email distribution list for info should add their name at www.tewksburyhabitatbuild.org
