App Builds a Home is a unique campus-wide partnership between Appalachian State University and Watauga County Habitat for Humanity to help local partner families build safe, affordable homes. In the App State tradition of community partnerships, this home build is a tangible commitment to our community and an opportunity for a campus-wide project to bring together students, faculty, staff, and alumni to help build a home with a local family.
Habitat for Humanity partners with communities all over the world to help build and improve affordable homes. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With this support, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability, and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.
We’re excited to share that we are kicking off our 5th Annual “Give Thanks, Give Back” Letter Writing Campaign where folks send emails or physical letters (provided by ABAH) to their families, friends, and neighbors to encourage them to donate to ABAH. In this month of giving, we couldn’t think of a better way to give back to the community and show our support for the building of the Winebarger’s home.
You can make ABAH Letter Writing a part of one of your regular organization meetings or have your group participate by emailing friends and family. Please fill out this form to have your organization participate. ABAH currently has a $10,000 matching grant so any donations made will be doubled!
