See what some of our donors have said about the experience.

Privilege to Work With Volunteers

Picture_091“On behalf on the NHL, thank you for all the time and commitment that went into making this amazing opportunity available for our participation. The NHL supports various charitable initiatives throughout the year, but this Habitat build was one of the highlights of 2008-2009. The effort you personally undertook in finding the ideal recipient family demonstrates the great humanitarian partnerships Habitat performs on a consistent basis.

Team NHL felt privileged to work side by side with all the volunteers and especially Mary Lyons, who I am sure touched each of us in our own personal way. I will never forget this experience and thank you for being such an integral part of this partnership.”

I am proud to donate to HFHMGC

100_0095_edit“As a Florida resident, I understand the enormous physical and psychological toll of a hurricane.  I have witnessed destruction first hand and have helped several family members and local friends rebuild.  Yet, it is still hard to comprehend the disastrous effects Hurricane Katrina had on the Gulf Coast.  While volunteering last winter with Habitat for Humanity of the Mississippi Gulf Coast, I witnessed first hand the long lasting effects of the storm and how much work is left to be done.”

“That is why I am proud to donate to HFHMGC.  I was impressed by their construction staff and amazed at the number of homes they have underway.  They are working endlessly to help the Mississippi Gulf Coast fully recover from Katrina.  It is wonderful to know my donations of time and money have and will continue to help.”

Hearts of Hope for Katrina

IMG_3857“I knew how overwhelming the needs were from my trips back to the Gulf Coast weeks and months after the storm. I saw the vacant looks in the eyes of those we were in line with on our many trips to Wal-Mart and Lowe’s….I knew I wanted to do more. I wanted to make a contribution and help in some small way.”
