Marketplace Events, is running their second annual fundraising campaign to support Habitat for Humanity and will be matching donations up to $20,000!
In our community and around the world, more than 1.6 billion people are living in substandard and inadequate shelter. Habitat for Humanity is improving the situation for many of these people by supporting families in need of decent and affordable housing.
Like Habitat, Marketplace Events believes in a world where everyone has a decent place to live and we hope you’ll join us in supporting this effort!
If you are able to give, any amount helps and donations are tax-deductible. Please give before June 28th at this link
to be counted towards our giving campaign and have your dollars matched.
