GENERAL DYNAMICS’ HEROES FOR
In an effort to showcase the remarkable ability of our Canadian military and uniformed services, Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario, supported by past and current members of the Canadian Armed Forces, the Royal Canadian Legion, RCMP, London Fire Department, London Police Services, London Police Association, EMS and citizens in the community will build a home for a qualifying London family. This means that the family must have a need for housing, be able to pay a zero interest mortgage geared to their income and is willing to volunteer 500 hours of sweat equity as the down payment for their home. The intent of this project is to show Canadians first-hand, the strength, compassion and commitment to community service of our men and women in uniform
The who is you – reaching out to your contacts and inviting your friends, family and colleagues to join your team and help build this house. Challenge other units, squads or departments in your workplace to join you!
The purpose is to raise the funds required to build a home – $2500.00 per team of ten individuals
The opportunity to work with your team onsite for a day of the build
The build site is on Forbes Street, London
The project starts now as we plan the build. The build begins in early June 2015.
One family, three kids, no safe place to play, soup for dinner again tonight. If this was happening in your backyard, what would you do next? 62,000 people in Oxford Middlesex Elgin and Perth alone live in poverty. One in every five is a child. There are over 4,600 families in line waiting for social housing assistance in our region. And the continuing tragedy is, future generations of these same families will live under similar conditions unless you choose to get involved. Help us as we build to end poverty
