What is GivingTuesdayNow?
#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
At a time when we are all experiencing the pandemic, generosity is what brings people of all races, faiths, and political views together across the globe. Generosity gives everyone power to make a positive change in the lives of others and is a fundamental value anyone can act on.
We can’t do our work without your support and now more than ever, we need you.
At Habitat Choptank, we know that there are many in our community who cannot “shelter in place” because they either do not have shelter or because their shelter is crowded, unsafe or unhealthy.
In the United States, 1 in 6 families pay half or more of their income on a place to live. This means that they are forced to make impossible choices. Safe homes. Nutritious food on the table. Health care. Reliable transportation.
As Habitat for Humanity International CEO, Jonathan Reckford, said "when these are the choices you face, you can’t win...[and] as the economic shocks from this crisis ripple out, these same families will be hardest hit. They always are."
For too many, this has already begun. In our community, these are the families with whom we partner. They will look to Habitat Choptank to help them realize their dream for a safe home of their own.
