Kerrville Morning Rotary Gifts $1,000 to Habitat for Humanity Kerr County
 
Kerrville Morning Rotary recently gifted $1,000 to Habitat for Humanity Kerr County to further the construction of affordable housing.
 
"Rotary's theme for this year is ‘Be a Gift to the World,’ and what better way to support that theme than to support those in our community who seek to improve the lives of their families with affordable housing. Habitat for Humanity has been a force for good in Kerrville by meeting that very important need for over 100 families,” said Mike Hunter, Kerrville Morning Rotary President.
 
Habitat for Humanity Kerr County, organized in 1989, has built and sold 101 homes to local low income families.  The families owning Habitat homes pay interest-free mortgages to further support the building of future homes. Habitat for Humanity Kerr County is a non-profit construction company and mortgage company with a mission to provide affordable home-ownership with a ‘hand up, not a hand out’ model of service. Habitat for Humanity Kerr County is affiliated with Habitat for Humanity International, a world-wide organization with the mission of eliminating sub-standard housing in our world. Habitat’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
 
“As a fellow Rotarian, I totally agree with the motto, ‘Service above Self.’” At Habitat we build homes for hard working folks, who probably could only dream of owning a home. One hundred percent of donations to Habitat for Humanity Kerr County go to fund the building of a home that will forever change the lives of the families who receive these homes as well as succeeding generations. Thanks to the Morning Rotary, these dreams are coming true,” said Philip Stacy, Executive Director for Habitat for Humanity Kerr County.
