A note from Paul Brown, MCPC’s Habitat4Humanity coordinator
THE HABITAT FOR HUMANITY SPRING WALK TO BUILD WILL BE HELD…VIRTUALLY!
FRIDAY, MAY 15 TO TUESDAY, JUNE 30, 2020
Dear Mid-Coast Family,
Yes! Habitat for Humanity/7 Rivers Maine is indeed going ahead with its major fundraiser of the year, the 2020 edition of THE SPRING WALK.
And yes, MCPC will again be an active supporter of this event……from a virtual perspective. This year everyone can participate, either by “walking” and donating or by simply donating.
The VIRTUAL Spring Walk to Build is being launched amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, and all our help is needed to make it a success. This event certainly will look different this year. We will not be able to walk together as we have done for the past 26 years. Your efforts to help with fundraising will be different too. With all our support, we will be able to contribute as a walker and/or donor in different ways as individuals (no walking together 😢):
- “walk” in the comfort of your home (e.g; treadmill), in your yard, around the neighborhood or at a nearby park, while observing COVID-19 guidelines. Just pick a date over a six-week interval and “go for it”!
- register to walk by joining the MCPC Team via the web, e-mail or phone
- donate with credit or debit cards via the web or mail a check
Details for walkers and donors:
