Ordering takeout helps build Habitat homes

NIAGARA REGION, ONTARIO – If the past year and a half has taught us anything, it has been the need to support our local businesses so that they can survive and thrive. We also realize the importance of having a place to live as our homes became our classrooms, offices, and our safe havens.

For the month of May, Habitat for Humanity Niagara is hosting an event appropriately named Home for Dinner that supports local restaurants and helps Habitat Niagara build homes for local families.

Home for Dinner is a community fundraising initiative, which encourages locals to order takeout from a selection of participating restaurants, and for every $25 takeout order Habitat’s sponsoring partners donate $5 to Habitat Niagara.

“This initiative came out of a passion to support an industry that has been hardest hit by the pandemic, our local restaurants, and how critical it is to have a safe and affordable home to shelter in place,” says Lorraine Snihur, Chief Development Officer, Habitat Niagara. “Our sponsoring partners were thrilled they could support local restaurants and Habitat Niagara to help build stronger communities as we navigate through these unsettling times.”

From May 1st to the 31st, Habitat Niagara is encouraging the community to visit www.habitatniagara.ca to choose from a list of participating restaurants and place a minimum $25 takeout order. Customers will get delicious food, support a local business, and help Habitat Niagara build affordable homes for families across Niagara.

Stay home. Order takeout. Build stronger communities.
