25th Anniversary Celebration

  

Goodhue County Habitat for Humanity is celebrating its 25th Anniversary – 25 years of building strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter!

Since our founding in 1993, we have partnered with families and volunteers to provide decent, affordable homes in our community. Everyone deserves the opportunity that your support of Goodhue County Habitat for Humanity makes available to them. We invite you to join us as we celebrate every family we have encountered in our years of building and repairing homes.

Start by logging onto http://www.smile.amazon.com, and Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase–excluding shipping, handling and taxes—to  Goodhue County Habitat for Humanity.
