On 9/23/11 I will be participating in a project with Libby’s and Habitat for Humanity. Fellow Pittsburgh Bloggers; Kim , Virginia and myself, will be building a house for people who need one in Pittsburgh. I was thrilled when I was asked to be a part of such an important project by Mom It Forward.
Libby’s Fruits & Vegetables are making family mealtimes a reality for 5 Pittsburgh families who will be moving into Habitat for Humanity Homes in the Pittsburgh area in 2011. Libby’s announced that they will be donating a dining set complete with place settings and a stocked pantry for each of the 5 families.
Meal time is such an important aspect of sharing the time with family. Libby’s is helping families stay connected and be able to enjoy good healthy meals together.
If you would like to participate, all you have to do is report to the Pittsburgh Habitat Office at 212 Yost Blvd., Suite A Pittsburgh, PA 15221 at 9 am on Friday September 23rd. The home blessing will take place at 10 am on Saturday September 24th at 317 North Evaline Street Pittsburgh, PA 15224. The more Volunteer’s the better
Also, I would like to share with you is the new Habitat ReStore shop at Edgewood Town Center. The Habitat for Humanity ReStore sells reusable house building and home improvement materials to the public. The store accepts donated goods which are sold at 30%-50% of the retail value. All proceeds from the sale of donations help place families in affordable shelter in the Greater Pittsburgh area. The ReStore provides an environmentally and socially responsible way to keep good, reusable materials recycled while providing funding for Habitat’s community improvement work.

Have a Wonderful Day!
