Our Habitat 500 Riders are Ready to Roll! Help Them Help Our Neighbors and Donate Now!
Our NSLCHFH team last year is eager to raise funds again! (From Left: Debbie Hultman, Doug and Christy Gettle,

As a supporter of North St. Louis County Habitat for Humanity, you know that our mission is to put God’s love into action by bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope. But, as we often ask at our home dedications, “Who is Habitat?” It is fun to point out at these events that we are all Habitat, each one of us in our own way, contributors to the mission of helping our neighbors out of substandard housing and into a simple, decent and affordable home.
This summer bicycle riders have determined that they can “Be Habitat.” Eight riders are doing so by riding their bikes for five hundred miles in seven days to raise funds and awareness for Habitat for Humanity home projects. Two of those riders are new to our team: Rolf Swanson and Shianne Gheen are doing their first Habitat 500! Josh Peterson cannot ride this year, but long-time rider David Bergum is back after a year's hiatus and is already raising a lot of funds! The other two riders, Doug and Christy Gettle, are not able to do the entire week, but are still riding for Habitat this summer and raising funds, something they have done for many years.
Please consider helping these devoted supporters as they ride for sustainable housing. Because, you also ARE Habitat! Without your financial support, we would not be able to buy the necessary materials to build homes. Without your energy and time on the build sites, we could not possibly construct five more homes. Without your help in spreading the good news of Habitat’s work, we would not have enough community support. You can change the lives of five families this year and get us one step closer to a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Together, we DO and WILL make a difference. Let's move ahead toward the world we envision, one where EVERYONE has a decent place to live. Donate today!
