February 16, 2015: Grant made possible through Thrivent Financial.
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Pittsburgh is thrilled to be the recipient of a $24,000 grant from Thrivent Financial. This grant is made possible through the Thrivent Builds with Habitat for Humanity program, a multi-million dollar, multi-year partnership between Thrivent Financial and Habitat for Humanity International.
Locally, this program will fund a home rehabilitation in the Penn Hills area. For information about the house or how to apply to be a partner family, visit www.pittsburghhabitat.org/homeownership .
“It is inspiring to work alongside Habitat families, Thrivent members and others to build and repair homes,” said Alan Caulkins, a financial representative with Thrivent Financial. “Sharing our time and talents helps us live generously and strengthen our community.”
Since the national partnership's inception in 2005, Thrivent Financial and its members have now committed $213 million and 4.4 million volunteer hours around the world.
"We are extremely grateful to Thrivent Financial and its members for their continued support of Habitat for Humanity," said Maggie Withrow, the HFHGP executive director. "Because of this generous donation to our local affiliate, another family will have a safe and affordable place to call home."
Thrivent Financial remains the largest non-governmental supporter of Habitat for Humanity International. For more information about the Thrivent Builds program, visit www.thriventbuilds.com. To learn more about local volunteer opportunities, visit www.pittsburghhabitat.org.
