Members of the Carpenter’s Club – those who give recurring monthly donations to Twin Cities Habitat – lay the foundation for a brighter future. Their sustaining gifts allow us to plan ahead, knowing we’ll have continuous support in the coming months. They help us save on solicitation materials and postage, because there’s no need to ask of those who give recurring gifts. And, Carpenter’s Club members can plan exactly how their giving will fit into their monthly budgets.

As part of the Carpenter’s Club, Lois Humbert is a sustaining monthly donor for Twin Cities Habitat.

She saw the impact of Habitat first-hand when a woman from her unit in Mary Kay purchased a Habitat home near Ashland, Wisconsin. The single mom had to put many hours of sweat equity into her home.

“I saw how she had to take more accountability and pride in her home because of that,” Lois said.

The only way Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity (TCHFH) can fulfill its mission of eliminating poverty housing in the metro area is by having the support of generous sponsors and committed volunteers like you. One of the most common ways we have of doing this is by having a company make a gift to TCHFH so their employees can spend a day, a week, or several weeks working to build a Habitat home or repairing a home with A Brush With Kindness. Pretty simple, right? Actually, there’s more to the story.
