September’s enrichment meeting welcomed everyone back from the summer break at the Danville Golf Club. Our speaker series continued this month by inviting Kim Baldridge, Executive Director of the Danville-Pittsylvania County Habitat for Humanity, to speak to our members about the mission of Habitat for Humanity here in our community.
She shared the story of the most recent recipient from our area, Mia Tate, whose house was completed this year. Kim was sure to emphasize that local donations directly affect local efforts; so when you give to your local Habitat for Humanity, your dollars are used in your own community. Since Habitat for Humanity is a self-help program, recipients help with the project and learn throughout the process.
DRRAR gave $500 to Habitat for Humanity as a result of this year’s charity golf tournament that took place in June. We are thankful for organizations like this that benefit our community every day!
