Habitat for Humanity North Central MA has the funds to begin its newest build project at 50 Henry Street in Fitchburg thanks to the outpouring of generosity shown by local businesses and individual donors who contributed to the agency’s most recent fundraising campaign. The “$25K in 25 Days” campaign began in mid-November and successfully concluded in mid-December.
Many local business, community groups, individual donors, volunteers and Habitat Staff came together to make the campaign a huge success. As part of the “25 in 25” effort, Habitat also participated in #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving held on the Tuesday following “Black Friday”. The organization also partnered with Ixtapa Mexican Cantina in Lunenburg to raise funds on GivingTuesday, by hosting a “Dine to Donate” event at the restaurant. Ten percent of all revenues generated by the restaurant for the day were donated to Habitat NCM.
Through these various events, and a generous matching gift of $10,000 from a generous benefactor, Habitat was able to collectively raise the $25,000 to begin work on a local family’s new home at the Henry Street property in Fitchburg.
Habitat for Humanity North Central MA would like to thank the following local business for contributing to the “25 in 25” campaign: Aubuchon Hardware, Enterprise Bank, D’Ambrosio Eye Center, Platt Builders, Webster First Federal Credit Union, Mercandante & Mercandante, PC, Erb & Southcotte, Can-Am Machinery and Select Engineering.
