Happy Thanksgiving! (And a belated Happy Thanksgiving to all of our Canadian friends!)
NOAHH is blessed with a bounty of things to be thankful for. We’ve been here for 30 years (and looking forward to 30 more), and because of our amazing partner families, dedicated volunteers, and generous donors, we’ve managed more than we ever dreamed of.
What we’ve–that is, you–accomplished is perhaps best summed up in two numbers: $307 million of economic impact and 500 homes built. We are proud that NOAHH has been able to be part of the city’s economic recovery, and the economic impact bought in not just by your donations, but also by the other contributions–every bit of money spent helped–you brought to the city. Every house built is so much more than simply a building. It’s the home for a hard working family from the New Orleans area, a symbol of security, stability, and solace. Our partner families are the most important people at our affiliate, and we thank them for their courage and dedication, just as we thank our volunteers and donors for helping us give them a hand up. Everyone at our offices, in our ReStore, and on our field staff is grateful for everything you’ve made possible.
This coming Tuesday, December 3, NOAHH will be participating in Giving Tuesday, a day set aside in the aftermath of Black Friday and Cyber Monday as a day for benefaction. If you would like to support NOAHH on this day, or any day, please click here for more information.
