Thank you to those who supported MO-Hab Ministry!
Manchester UMC and other supporters of MO-Hab recently donated $48,825.48 to Habitat for Humanity St. Louis. The generosity of many will enable a working family to become homeowners.
The new homeowners put in 350 hours of sweat equity along with Habitat volunteers to build their home. They are also required to attend classes on budgeting for their monthly mortgage payment, taxes, insurance and home maintenance.
MO-Hab participants pedal bikes, walk & run to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity St. Louis. An annual gift of $25,000 is made in the spring from donations collected the previous year. 2021 was a phenomenal year as $35,000 was raised for Habitat. Accumulated donations of $13,825 from 2015-2020 was added to this year’s gift.
It is exciting that MUMC and MO-Hab supporters are able to help in such a big way this year, exactly when Habitat for Humanity St. Louis has a greater need.
Habitat for Humanity St. Louis is extremely grateful for the generous check of $48,825.48. MO-Hab is extremely grateful for everyone’s support of their fund-raising efforts. Learn more about MO-Hab.
