For the past fifteen years, the Hoedown For Humanity was the largest fundraiser of the year for Habitat Calaveras. This year, the event is completely online.
The Hoedown will continue through Saturday night. To participate, go to https://www.habitatcalaveras.org/ and click the 17th annual Hoedown link. Viewers will be able to browse through over forty silent auction items. There will also be raffle drawings. Donations are tax-deductible. 100% of every dollar raised stays right here in our community.
Every day throughout the Motherlode, thousands of hard-working families are being forced out of their homes—often having to drive hundreds of miles a day just to keep the service jobs we all count on, such as grocery store clerks, food service workers, and retail associates.
In fact, almost half of the renters in Calaveras County pay 35% or more of their monthly income on housing—with only 2% of the existing housing stock available for rent. It’s a combination of factors that are creating an affordable housing crisis here in the Motherlode
Habitat for Humanity is providing these folks not with a handout, but a hand up. Our mission is to build and repair working-class homes, help keep families healthy and together, and strengthen our local economy and communities.
Habitat Calaveras has been serving Calaveras County since 1996. They have built 15 homes and repaired hundreds of homes all in Calaveras County. For more information, call 209-890-3848.
