When you see the “25th Anniversary Leadership Challenge” sponsoring projects in 2018, thank the past and present board members who are supporting our work.
Our affiliate officially came into existence 25 years ago after months of organizing meetings between volunteers in the early 1990s. Seven individuals were elected to our first board of directors on February 11, 1993 and a total of 101 board members have served since then. Greater Fox Cities Area Habitat for Humanity has grown from that initial meeting to one of the nation’s leading Habitat affiliates organizing over 6,000 volunteers to help over 1,000 people annually. We owe a lot to those who had the passion, vision and dedication to help us grow. They helped so many people across the Fox Valley find a place to call “home.”
In honor of our upcoming anniversary, a group of former board members are organizing “The 25th Anniversary Leadership Challenge” to fund projects throughout our program. These board members are asking others who have served on our board to pledge and support Habitat. The group will be fundraising over the next few months and invite past board members to be part of the projects throughout our 25th anniversary year.
Everything we are today started as a dream a quarter century ago. Or success came due to those who made the dream a reality. Our thanks to everyone who has served on our board and those part of the Leadership Challenge!
