Cumberland, Md. — The Standard Charitable Foundation, with support from Standard Bank, has awarded a $7,500 grant to Allegany County Habitat for Humanity to assist with the purchase of materials for their current housing project, which is located in Cumberland, Maryland.
Allegany County Habitat for Humanity is part of the global, non-profit housing organization that helps people in their communities and around the world build or improve a place they can call home. Four deserving families in Allegany County have been the recipients of newly constructed homes since 2012. Construction on the next house is slated to begin in 2020.
Although hundreds of hours of work are generously donated by both skilled and unskilled volunteers, we still need to raise significant funds to build each home. Grants through organizations such as Standard Bank are an integral part of our financial support. Annual fundraising events include a summer barbeque and the Great Allegany Run, a 15K and 5K run the first Saturday in October.
