Habitat Challenge to Donors
Drs. Timothy Barnes and Dennis Miller, local dentists at General Dentistry in Mariposa, are again challenging year-end donors to Habitat for Humanity to match their donation of $1,500 for safe, decent, affordable housing. Donations in any amount may be made to HFH of Mariposa County at P.O. Box 1420, Mariposa 95338. Please note “Habitat Challenge” on the check. These donations are tax deductible. Our gratitude goes out to Drs. Barnes and Miller for this generous support of our affiliate.
A Brush With Kindness
This fall Habitat has completed three work projects through our A Brush With Kindness program. One more is being scheduled for early December. Bruce Pickard, ABWK manager, headed the crew that painted a double-wide mobile home on a Saturday in October. Louie Edwards, Construction Chair for HFH of MC, led his construction crew in the building of a ramp. The homeowners shown here were very pleased with the results.
