McKinney, TX (April 1, 2015) – Habitat for Humanity of North Collin County launched the Purple House Project at the Celina Cajun Festival on Saturday, March 28. This kicked off a fundraising campaign for NCC Habitat with a goal of raising $100,000 for their 100th Home. The campaign will run from March through November, 2015. NCC Habitat met with many families across the North Texas area and generated much interest in their family programs and organization’s mission.
The 100th Home for NCC Habitat will be built in Celina, TX. Construction for the home is scheduled to begin in September of 2015. NCC Habitat is currently raising the funds for the construction of Home 100, known as “The Purple House”.
NCC-Habitat will also be building the 100th Habitat house in Puerto Lempira, Honduras. Puerto Lempira is the site of NCC Habitat’s Global Village Mission Build where NCC Habitat builds one house annually. This double commemoration makes this celebration even more meaningful for NCC Habitat.
“Its hard to believe that we will be building home 100 this fall. This equates to affordable housing for over 400 people in North Collin County. Many of the children in Habitat homes are now graduating from college, getting married and have increased their horizons since becoming homeowners. In Honduras, these 100 homes have made such an impact on that tiny fishing village by housing more than 600 natives. Instead of living in storage sheds, these homeowners now have a concrete floor and the ability to lock their door and feel safe. What a blessing” said Celeste H. Cox, Executive Director of NCC Habitat.
