VISTA member, Salome Clarke serving at Habitat for Humanity of Denton County has been working with the staff and Board of Directors to solicit sponsorships for Habitat’s upcoming 2015 Run It. Walk It. Build It. Walk-a-thon. To date, $9,500 and in-kind donations such as water, fruit and coffee, have been raised through sponsorships from churches, businesses and civic organizations throughout Denton County. The proceeds from the Walk-a-thon will go toward the new #habitat50in5 initiative. Habitat for Humanity of Denton County recently acquired 8 acres of land in Southeast Denton and will be building 50 homes in the next 5 years. Salome has recruited 10 volunteers to serve in volunteer leadership positions on the Habitat Denton construction team. These volunteers will assist the Habitat construction team with crew leadership, purchasing materials, and with Auto-CAD.
Habitat for Humanity of Denton County is a partner agency of the VISTA North Texas Project hosted by Chisholm Trail RSVP, Inc.
