Building Homes...Building Hope

Habitat for Humanity Vermilion is a Project Committee of the Lloydminster Chapter of Habitat for Humanity.
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization.

Pennies Add UP, UP, UP!

At St. Jerome's Catholic Scool students have proven that a penny saved is a penny earned, and in this case, 164,269 pennies added up to a wonderful donation of $1642.69 to Vermilion Adopt-a-Home . We suspect that there were a few loonies and twonies in the collection, but after only one week of voluntarily collecting loose change, the children and teenagers at home, school, and after Christmas Mass at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church, were successful in making this generous donation to help house one of their own students in decent, affordable housing.
