CenterPoint Energy celebrating 20 years of supporting Habitat families

What: CenterPoint Energy volunteer crews will be helping build two homes the week of June 18-22. This is the 20th straight year that CenterPoint Energy has helped fund and supply volunteers to support Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity’s mission of eliminating poverty housing.

The volunteers will be working at 4017 6th St. NE in Columbia Heights Monday, June 18 and Tuesday, June 19.

They’ll also be working at 14817 Hampshire Avenue in Savage Wednesday, June 20 through Friday, June 22. Volunteers will be on site from 8:30am to 4:00pm each day.

Background: Approximately 1,700 CenterPoint Energy employees and retirees have volunteered more than 14,000 hours with Twin Cities Habitat over the past twenty years. The homes they’re helping build this summer will be sold to hardworking, low-income families. Habitat homebuyers pay a mortgage and taxes. They must perform hundreds of hours of sweat equity and complete homeownership training courses before closing on their new homes.

This will be the 24th home that Habitat has built in Columbia Heights over the past 25 years. In Savage, this is one of four Habitat homes being built side-by-side this summer, bringing the all-time total to seven Habitat homes in Savage.
