Habitat for Humanity in the Running for Pepsi Refresh Funds

Chamber member Fort Wayne Habitat for Humanity needs your help! It’s time to put that community spirit to work. They are in the running for $250,000 with the Pepsi Refresh Project, but they need Fort Wayne's help to make this happen. If Habitat wins, $180,000 will go toward building three additional houses in 2011 – which means three additional Fort Wayne families will have safe, affordable housing.

Additionally, $45,000 will go towards upgrading Chamber member Habitat ReStore, and $25,000 will go towards rejuvenating the 5 Million Cans Fort Wayne Recycling Program.

Habitat needs to get the most votes in this contest in order to receive the funds. You can vote right here, or you can text 101659 to PEPSI (73774). When you sign in, bookmark your page, and you can visit the page and vote every day! (You are allowed to vote one time a day, every day.) Voting continues until the end of August. 

Please spread the word! If you would like more information on how you can help Habitat achieve this goal, contact Andi Jo Shroyer at ashroyer@fortwaynehabitat.org or (260) 422-4828, ext. 302.
