“For a community to be whole and healthy, it must be based on people’s love and concern for each other.”
– Millard Fuller, lawyer, author, and founder of Habitat for Humanity.
It is safe to say that none of us expected 2020 to look the way it has so far. From the terrible impact of COVID-19 to political and civil unrest in the United States and around the world, this year has truly been one like no other. And while we have all experienced the turbulence of 2020 in one way or another, homeowners have especially been impacted by it.
During the 15-week height of the pandemic from end of March to June, the United States reported that roughly 49 million Americans had filed new claims for unemployment benefits. It is estimated that the United States could potentially need an additional 7 million housing units to meet current demand for extremely low-income renters and those impacted by the pandemic.
Through Habitat for Humanity’s efforts to partner with people in your community, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability, and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and for their families. In Habitat homes, families find better health, more financial freedom, and security.
All of us at Private Capital Group would like to take this moment to thank you for your generous donations to our annual Habitat for Humanity Build-A-Thon. Your contributions are greatly appreciated, and with your help, we raised $21,903.55 to help families in our community fulfill their dream of owning a beautiful home. On October 9th, while taking proper PPE and social distancing precautions, several members of the PCG team worked on two houses in Bristol, CT to install outdoor siding. While manual construction was a new experience for many of us, we enjoyed the opportunity to get our hands dirty and learn more about the history of Habitat for Humanity as well as see the efforts of our work come to life.
Private Capital Group is so fortunate to partner with an organization like Habitat for Humanity and we look forward to continuing to contribute in any way that we can towards Habitat’s goal.
We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy, and we hope to see you soon!
