Habitat for Humanity of Snohomish County has announced that they will help families impacted by the Oso landslide repair or rebuild their homes.
Habitat has a goal of raising $1.5 million to help repair nine homes and rebuild 10.
Coastal Community Bank has established a fund to provide long term assistance in the form of safe, affordable homes to those who have lost their homes as a result of the Oso disaster.
“The thoughts and prayers of everyone in Habitat for Humanity of Snohomish County are with all those who have lost so much in the Oso Mudslide,” said Guinn Rogers, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Snohomish County. “Our organization is composed of compassionate volunteers who recognize the importance of home ownership and we are prepared to assist in whatever ways possible in the efforts to relocate, rehabilitate, or re-construct homes for those rendered homeless by this disaster.”
Habitat is asking for support from donors, volunteers, corporate partners and other community organizations. They are accepting offers of material and volunteer assistance in addition to financial support.
Donations to Habitat’s $1.5 million Long Term Recovery Fund can be made directly to Coastal Community Bank.
