Vision for 2013
Circle of Faith coalition has been asked to consider undertaking a ‘full sponsorship' of a GDM Habitat home. This
requires providing $80,000 in cash and approved gift-in-kind donations plus volunteer labor. Sacred Heart Parish, West Des
Moines, will be joining the coalition.
The Catholic Circle of Faith house is located at 124 1st Street in
West Des Moines and the homebuyer family has not yet been matched to this property. It will be one of the families currently
working their way through required classes and other sweat equity.
Volunteer Opportunities: work has begun on
the house, and volunteers are needed! Dennis Rau is the volunteer coordinator for St. Pius.
for the 2013 Build: In-kind donations. The goal for the 2013 build is to raise a mixture of gifts-in-kind and cash
totaling $80k with significant effort put toward gifts-in-kind. If you are interested in learning more about the how that
Habitat in-kind donation program works, please contact Jim Cade. A Habitat representative will
contact you to provide more information about providing in-kind donations. Here are the types of in-kind donations our
Support: Each parish participating in the Habitat build is required to provide a cash donation in addition to volunteer support.
St. Pius has pledged $7500 to this project. There are options for you to use to support our Habitat project.
The envelope for the Special Monthly Offering has the Habitat for Humanity project listed as an option.
Matching Gift Program: Check with your employer to see if they offer a matching donation program and Habitat is an eligible
organization. If so, please make the contribution payable to Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity and indicate in the memo
line that it is to support the St. Pius X 2013 Build. Companies make the donation directly to Habitat for Humanity and it
will be a matching donation for St. Pius.

Did you know?
Did you know that Habitat has acquired more than 30 foreclosed properties over the past three years?
The most cost-effective approach to maintaining communities is to help families stay in their homes. Foreclosed and abandoned
properties can strain local governments and devalue surrounding properties. With the help of the City of Des Moines, Wells
Fargo, Bank of America, and many other organizations, GDM Habitat has been able to aid in revitalizing and transforming neighborhoods
by turning these properties into vibrant homeownership opportunities.
