VSA has the privilege of being a Build Team in a special collaboration between Habitat for Humanity of Northern Virginia and Mr. Benton, an Air Force veteran of the Vietnam War. Mr. Benton suffered a devastating home fire that left him without the resources to make repairs. He reached out to Habitat for Humanity of Northern Virginia with an offer -- he would donate part of his land to build a home for a family in need, if in turn they could provide him a similar lifeline, a new home -- House #1.
Habitat for Humanity Northern Virginia will place an immigrant family from Uzbekistan, a family of four, in House #2. Currently the parents and children, ages 17 and 11, are living in a one bedroom/one bathroom apartment. The kids sleep in a bunk bed located in the dining room. The father is a dishwasher, and when he comes home from work at 1-2am every night, he unavoidably wakes the children, as there is no privacy in the apartments. The two new homes home will each be 1600 sqft with three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
VSC employees had set the fundraising goal at $4,500 and are proud to have successfully raised $4,750!
A huge shout out to our VSC staff, family, friends, and associates for supporting our fundraising efforts for H4H NOVA.
We thank you for your generosity!
