In March of 2018, First Presbyterian Church made a one-time donation to the Habitat for Humanity in Staunton, Virginia.  Although we gave financial help to the local agency, Habitat is an international effort to provide housing for people without adequate shelter.  People who need a home work with volunteers to build their new home or renovate an older home in which they will live.  The families who are able to pay a mortgage do so, and stores that carry donated household goods offer additional financial support.  Habitat also goes into areas of natural disaster to assist in clean-up and rehabilitation of houses.   This year is our first year of supporting this valuable agency’s work but hopefully not the last.
