We hope this letter finds you and your loved ones safe and well.
As you may know, every year, Private Capital Group partners with Habitat for Humanity during their annual Hartford Area Habitat Build-A-Thon. We have been taking part in this event for over 17 years and have raised over $220,000 with the help of our family, friends, and clients.
Habitat for Humanity partners with people in our community, and all over the world, to help them build or improve a place they can call home. With your support, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and for their families.
Now more than ever, Habitat for Humanity’s work is critical. For many families, the daily lives of those who were already struggling with a need for decent and affordable housing have only become more challenging. For others, the future is newly uncertain for those who find themselves affected by the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year, Private Capital Group will be volunteering with Habitat on Friday, October 9th. Our team will work on two homes in Bristol, CT where we will be doing exterior construction, installing windows and doors, and other various tasks.
We hope that you will join us in this effort with a donation to the Build-A-Thon. We are pleased to announce that we now have an online donation platform which you can access by texting PCG2020 to 71777. This year, you can also donate through your personal Fidelity or Schwab charitable giving account. To add to your donation, some employers offer matching gift programs; please see below for more instructions on this as well as other ways to give. Remember, your donation may be tax-deductible!
Your donation will give families in need of a decent home the chance to build long-term financial security. With an affordable, stable home, families will have more to spend on food, medicine, childcare, education, and other essentials. Thanks to you, Habitat will transform lives all around the world.
Thank you in advance for contributing to our build!
