A Message from Holston Habitat Executive Director, Laura Kelly
Thank you to those who have contacted us about MacKenzie Scott’s recent and generous $436 million dollar donation to Habitat for Humanity. Holston Habitat for Humanity is not among the affiliates selected to receive funds from this generous donation, and therefore this will not affect our operations across the Tri-Cities region. However, we are thrilled to celebrate with those benefiting from this gift, as it helps further Habitat’s mission of building homes, communities, and hope. We are proud for the two affiliates in Tennessee who received contributions from this donation, and we are especially excited about the opportunities this creates for more hardworking families across the U.S. to achieve strength and stability through Habitat homes.
We hope that this tremendous donation will inspire others to give boldly and within their means. What a fantastic example MacKenzie is setting for philanthropists across the world! We appreciate your continuous and generous support as we address the critical need for affordable housing in Washington, Carter, and Sullivan Counties in East TN, and in Bristol, VA. We thank you for your financial support, your prayers, your time, and your voice that continues to build brighter futures.
