Standard Charitable Foundation Awards $7,500 Grant to Habitat for Humanity to Build New Frostburg Home
LaVale, Md. – Standard Charitable Foundation has awarded a $7,500 grant to Allegany County Habitat for Humanity (ACHFH) to assist with the purchase of materials and construction costs for Habitat’s next housing project in Frostburg, Maryland.
Allegany County Habitat for Humanity builds affordable homes in partnership with families in need, working with individuals and organizations who donate time, talents, materials and funds to assist in building homes. Habitat families help build the home and purchase it through a no-interest mortgage.
“With the help of Standard Bank, we have been able to fund the building of three homes in Allegany County and we look forward to our next build,” said Terri Lowery, President of ACHFH. “We couldn’t do it without the generous support of Standard Bank, along with the many donations of time, energy and money that we receive from so many people in our community.”
Cindy Schartiger, Standard Bank market manager, comments “Standard Bank is proud to be an integral part of the Allegany County community and is happy to help organizations like Habitat for Humanity, which work so hard to improve the quality of life in Allegany County.”
Standard Charitable Foundation’s mission is to provide financial support to not for profit organizations in the communities in which Standard Bank operates. The Standard Charitable Foundation was established in conjunction with the 2010 conversion of Standard Bank’s parent company from mutual to stock form.
Allegany County Habitat for Humanity is always seeking individuals, civic clubs, churches, schools and community groups who are interested in helping to build a home and advance the mission of ACHFH. If you or your organization would like to partner with ACHFH, please visit them online at www.alleganycountyhfh.org or call (301) 687-1006. Donations are always welcome and can be sent to P.O. Box 3162, LaVale, MD 21504.
