Dear Habitat Supporters,
“Volunteers” – as builders, advocates, educators, donors, advisers and ambassadors – have been the heart of Dacotah Tipis’ work for the past 20 years. In fact, the inspiration to grow and continue our mission of serving more families in need of decent, affordable housing comes not from our office, but from the many volunteers who truly manifest that which is Habitat. Whether a single woman from Thunder Bay, Ontario, a retired couple on a much needed church mission trip from Grand Rapids, Michigan, or the men and women of our regional community that serve consistently as board and committee members…
Volunteers remain essential to our success!
We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to help us celebrate 2012, our 20th Anniversary Year by participating in a Habitat “Day of Giving.” This program enables companies and organizations to provide their employees or members with meaningful volunteer experiences that create memories – and won’t go unnoticed.
A “Day of Giving” also provides an opportunity to work together in a neutral environment fostering amazing interactions among your team members and with our partner families. This is a wonderful venue to perform community service and have a lot of fun. It also can be the perfect team building exercise for your work groups.
Select a day of service, raise a donation, provide a team of volunteers,
and join in on the fun.
|Typical Day of Giving scenario:
For 20 years the Dacotah Tipis Habitat affiliate has been the only organization building privately purchased homes on the Crow Creek Reservation. Every house we build is the miraculous result of generous gifts-in-kind and monetary donations, leveraged with volunteer labor and the sweat equity hours of the partner families.
As Dacotah Tipis grows to serve more families, our mission to eliminate poverty housing remains constant, and volunteers remain essential to our success. We are committed to providing meaningful volunteer experiences that truly engage our volunteers, and ultimately serve more families. To find out more about a “Day of Giving” or volunteering with Dacotah Tipis HFH, give us a call, or send us an e-mail today.
