Square Foot Partners
The "Square Foot Partners" are donors that contribute $50.00/month to Habitat for Humanity of Bulloch County. At a rate of $50.00/month, over the course of a year, a person would be contributing enough to provide ceiling fans throughout one of our partnering family's home. Or, $600 would provide lumber for the porches at the front and side entrances to the home. This club helps donors to realize what they are putting into a home, using items they may take for granted in their own homes. This also hope to encourages those that aren't able to contribute mega bucks, by demonstrating that small gifts mean a lot when added to other small gifts.
