2 Habitat Award to NFRC Habitat for Humanity Buffalo provides homes to low-income families, who must repay the 0% interest mortgage, contribute 500 hours of “sweat equity”, and complete classes on budgeting, home ownership, etc. NFRC has been a partner of Habitat for Humanity Buffalo for over seven years! Almost every month, our members present a basket of books to the children of the new homeowners during the house dedication. In 2009, Habitat presented NFRC a Key of Hope Award for our continuing involvement. This past December, Sue Busch, past Outreach chair, was given the Hope Award for organizing and presenting the baskets. Thank you to all the members of NFRC for supporting the outreach projects of our great organization. We do make a difference! Two Habitat for Humanity house dedications were held on December 7, 2014, for which NFRC presented baskets of books to the children. The basket on the left was provided on the occasion of the first “Veteran Build” home. Two young daughters of the Army veteran were the recipients of books and a few holiday surprises.
