Rutherford County Area Habitat for Humanity (MIddle Tennessee) presents our Survive the Pandemic Auction!
Like all nonprofits across the globe, Rutherford County Habitat has been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic, and has had to temporarily close the Habitat ReStore. Proceeds from our ReStore fund the administrative costs of our mission, so this has had a dramatic impact on our budget.
Your purchase through this auction will help us continue our Financial Literacy and Homeowner Education Program as well as fast-track our house builds as soon as the pandemic restirctions are lifted.
The delay in our mission has been hard on our Future Homeowners, who often live in substandard housing, and are stressed by high housing costs, sometimes more than 50% of their income!
Most items will be up for weekly auctions from April 10 - May 31. Items will also have a "Buy Now" option. All items will be available for pickup at our Habitat ReStore at 850 Mercury Blvd., Murfreesboro, TN. You can pay for your items through PayPal or Credit Card. And some items, such as gift cards, can be mailed to you. Thank you for your support!
As an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, we’ve built over 164 affordable homes in Rutherford County TN. Habitat does not give houses away but instead helps families who would not normally qualify for a mortgage and provides the financial education and guidance for them to buy a house through a low-interest mortgage. In addition to a 30-week financial and home owner education program, they must complete 300-400 hours of “sweat equity”, working on the construction of Habitat houses and/or the Habitat ReStore. Habitat Partner families are then equipped to mange their money and move out of the cycle of poverty. We call this a “Hand Up, Not a Hand Out”!
Thank you for your support!
