MSBR holds Habitat fundraiser
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.
