Our hearts go out to the people of Nepal and neighboring countries after the magnitude-7.8 earthquake on April 25, 2015.
Habitat for Humanity International has worked in Nepal for 18 years and has helped tens of thousands of families in need of decent housing. Habitat’s disaster response teams are coordinating response operations with local government agencies and disaster relief partners, and will be assembling emergency shelter kits. To support these efforts, donate to Habitat for Humanity International’s Disaster Response Fund. Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity’s affiliate tithe monies will also be designated for Nepal Disaster Response.
Our second annual Explore with ReStore offered a variety of activities and learning opportunities for the general public. We would like to thank Gary LaGrange of Golden Prairie Honey Farms, Gregg Eyestone of the K-State Research and Extension – Riley County Office, the Firefighters of Firehouse No. 3, and Rod Harms of the Wildcat Creek Watershed Council for sharing their expertise.
A little rain did not stop us from dedicating Build 24 on April 18, 2015. We are so thankful for all volunteers, donors, community members, churches, organizations, contractors, and suppliers for their assistance in making our first build in Wamego a success!
