Habitat for Humanity: Power of a Dollar Fundraiser
Nov. 24, 2009
BLOOMINGTON, Ill. –Thursday, Nov. 26, as millions of Americans across the country
sit down to give thanks, Illinois Wesleyan University students active in Habitat for
Humanity remind us to remember the less fortunate.
Over Illinois Wesleyan’s Thanksgiving break the campus chapter of Habitat for Humanity
will be doing its Power of a Dollar Fundraiser, asking all its members and students
wishing to participate in the organization to ask 25 people for $1. The money raised
will be used to build two LEED (leadership in energy and environmental design) certified
houses for families in need.
These two homes would be the first of their kind in the county and will be designed
and built using energy saving strategies including water efficiency, carbon dioxide
emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality and stewardship of resources
and sensitivity to their impacts.
