Habitat for Humanity of Mariposa County is Sponsoring Community Dinner

Habitat for Humanity would like to extend an invitation to join them for a Community Lasagna Dinner at Mariposa Lutheran Church on Saturday November 9th,   from 5 to 8pm.    The focus of the event is to welcome and introduce Sarah Philips and Family,  who will be partnering with Habitat to build their 5th home in Mariposa County.  The public is invited to attend.   

Habitat for Humanity of Mariposa is proud to be part of an international effort to build affordable housing.   They stand behind the principle of “giving a hand up,  not a hand-out.”    Qualifying Partner Families contribute their “sweat equity” in the construction of their home,   and then purchase it through an affordable loan.  

This local Habitat for Humanity affiliate not only thrives on financial support,  but also,  it is run by volunteers who give their time to the mission.   Without volunteer support they could not succeed in their ultimate goal of building homes for qualifying families.   Many people in our community have had the chance to volunteer with Habitat and have had a great experience.   As Habitat now prepares for Sarah’s new family home,  they are also welcoming new volunteers for construction and support help.    All volunteers are welcome from skilled to those who simply wish to contribute.    The Habitat staff will find an opportunity for you.    Please go to the top of our website (green “volunteer button) to learn about the volunteer opportunities that will be available during construction of the new home.  It will be located on Stroming Rd. in Mariposa town.

Save the date for November 9th at 5pm,   to welcome Sarah Philips and Family into partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Mariposa.    Dinner will include lasagna,   salad,   garlic bread and a wonderful dessert.    A vegetarian choice will be offered.    Asking donation of $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 6 – 12 with children under 6 at no charge.  All proceeds will help Habitat build the next home for Sarah and her children.    

Please contact the Habitat office to reserve your tickets at 209-966-7444.   Early purchase is recommended.    The celebration will be at the Mariposa Lutheran Church,  4469 Highway 49 South.
