Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity turns 20 this year! We were founded in 1994 and have built 23 homes since then. This fall, we plan to begin Build 24 in Wamego. We need to raise $40,000 before we start building! What will your donation buy?
Due to a growing concern with poverty and homelessness in Manhattan, an inaugural “Everybody Counts” event is scheduled for Wednesday, January 29th, 2014. This free community-wide service event, located at the First United Methodist Church‘s Harris Activity Center at 530 Poyntz Ave, will start at 10am and continue for 24 hours. It is designed to provide services for those in need, foster community connections, and develop a plan to address the future needs of the community. Please spread the word!
Thank you to everyone who “made it a day on, not a day off” and came out to volunteer at ReStore on this year’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service! Many hands make light work and we accomplished a lot. A big thanks to HandsOn Kansas State for recruiting and organizing volunteers that served at more than 20 different locations all over Manhattan, including ours!
