Fort Collins Habitat for Humanity is hosting their 4th annual We Build Breakfast on Wednesday, Nov. 14. We encourage everyone to join them to commemorate their 25th anniversary and highlight the impact they’ve made in that time. There will also be an unprecedented dollar for dollar matching gift opportunity.
The one-hour program will focus on Habitat’s latest project, the Harmony Cottages, as well as how their organization creates STEM learning opportunities with the Poudre High School Geometry in Construction program.
- Harmony Gardens – Harmony Cottages is their largest housing development to date! Harmony Cottages will not only provide homes but also a beautiful and safe community for its residents. This new neighborhood is located on the southeast corner of Taft Hill Road and Harmony Road and consists of 48 homes, which translates to reliable and affordable housing for approximately 144 people!
- STEM Learning – This is the ultimate hands-on learning opportunity—80 students spend the school year learning common core geometry before putting their skills to the test by constructing a Habitat for Humanity home. The modular structure (built on the school parking lot) is then moved to a neighborhood, placed on a foundation, finished, inspected and sold to a Habitat homebuyer family. The breakfast event will conclude with an opportunity to tour the latest home built by PHS students.
The We Build Breakfast event is free to attend, but guests must RSVP by Nov. 8. Visit their website to learn more!
