Who will be speaking?
Three incredible women will be speaking at the virtual luncheon. Former Minneapolis Mayor and current Habitat board member Sharon Sayles Belton will moderate the conversation between civil rights icon Dr. Josie Johnson and her granddaughter and criminal justice activist Josie Duffy Rice. You won't want to miss their inspiring discussion.
You'll also hear from our President & CEO Chris Coleman, who will share how your gifts will support your neighbors.
What do my gifts go to?
Every dollar raised at the Luncheon goes to our At Home Fund to protect homeowners and multiply Habitat homeownership opportunities during this COVID-19 crisis. Home has never been more important, so your generosity is critical this year.
I can’t tune in – how can I give now and watch later?
