Housing affordability has been a growing concern for local families over the past few years, but one local business is trying to help. This holiday season, New North Greenhouses is excited to bring you a new promotion that will add a festive touch to your home as well as raise money for much-needed local housing.
New North Greenhouses is hosting a fundraiser known as “Festive Planters for Habitat Homes” to benefit Habitat for Humanity Sault Ste. Marie’s Affordable Homeownership Program. Funds will be used to help local families escape the cycle of poverty and find their forever homes on Goulais Avenue.
Habitat’s mission is to bring our community together to help local families build strength, stability, and self-reliance through affordable homeownership. This spring the charity is finished up a universally accessible Habitat Home on Blake Avenue for Ahmad, Manal, and their three young sons – a family who came to Canada in 2016 after fleeing the war in Syria. Next, Habitat will begin its biggest project yet – a five-unit complex on Goulais Avenue which will serve five diverse families of varying sizes. The organization expects to break ground in spring 2024!
New North Greenhouses has created 50 outdoor evergreen arrangements with 3 different festive themes. Festive Planters for Habitat Homes are available to pre-purchase on the New North website, www.newnorthgreenhouses.ca. Planters are $65 plus HST. $10.00 from each planter sold will be donated to Habitat for Humanity Sault Ste. Marie. There is a limited supply of each theme, so purchase your planters today!
Planters will be available for pick up at the New North HOLIDAY STORE in Churchill Plaza beginning Friday November 17th, 2023.
New North Greenhouses and Habitat for Humanity look forward to seeing you this holiday season and would encourage you to keep in contact through their social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
