Wauseon based business Don’s Automotive Group is sponsoring a fundraiser to benefit Habitat for Humanity of Fulton County, Ohio. Coins for our Community will begin Monday, January 13th and run through February 28th. Collection containers will be placed in numerous locations throughout Fulton County including at least three school district buildings.
Don’s hope is to provide a way for area children and families to give of themselves, whether it is a few cents, dollars or more and thus give back to and improve their communities. The goal is to raise $5000.00 during this fundraiser. All proceeds will help families in need through the Habitat for Humanity program in Fulton County.
Habitat’s mission is to provide simple, decent and affordable housing for families in Fulton County who demonstrate a need and desire to better their environments. Families must qualify into the program, participate in educational classes and invest numerous hours of labor into building Habitat projects. Without community partnerships, donations and volunteers, Habitat for Humanity would not be able to help families reach their dreams of safe and affordable home ownership. Heidi Kern, Executive Director of Fulton County’s Habitat affiliate states, “This partnership with Don’s Automotive is a blessing to Habitat and the future families that need our services. Habitat is beginning to raise funds right now for our next Build Project and Coins for our Community will certainly help with that.”
