MSBR holds Habi­tat fundraiser

Dorchester Star - - Local -

EAS­TON — The Mid-Shore Board of Re­al­tors re­cently held a sold out Paint Night with the pro­ceeds ben­e­fit­ing the Women’s Build project of Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity Chop­tank.

Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity Chop­tank was se­lected by MSBR Pres­i­dent Sheila Wash­burn as the fo­cal char­ity for the Real­tor as­so­ci­a­tion for 2016 and Paint Night is one of sev­eral fundrais­ers be­ing held through­out the year.

“Sev­eral Real­tor mem­bers are on the Habi­tat board or serve on Habi­tat com­mit­tees. Our two or­ga­ni­za­tions goals are very closely aligned,” Wash­burn said. “Paint Night pro­ceeds helped the Women Build project, and will be used to help fund the con­struc­tion of a home in Eas­ton built by lo­cal women.”

Women Build is a Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity pro­gram that em­pow­ers and en­gages women in learn­ing con­struc­tion skills, build­ing homes, and pos­i­tively im­pact­ing com­mu­ni­ties. This pro­gram brings to­gether women from all walks of life and their many abil­i­ties, and is more than just swing­ing a ham­mer.
