forks writes in thanks to the United Way of Grand Forks, East Grand Forks.
GRAND FORKS — I’m writing to express my thanks for the help the United Way of Grand Forks, East Grand Forks and Area has given to Red River Valley Habitat for Humanity. Over the past few months, our organization has been making strides toward becoming relevant and productive in the Red River Valley. We are about to finish a home for a deserving family and plan to start a duplex in the spring of 2014. None of this would have been possible without the help of the United Way. The funding provided to Red River Valley Habitat for Humanity serves to pay my salary, which in turn lets us to devote virtually all of our donations to building homes. In addition to providing funding to us, United Way also has given the Red River Valley Habitat for Humanity the chance to speak to various groups around Grand Forks and East Grand Forks. This lets us spread our message and recruit new volunteers. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the United Way of Grand Forks, East Grand Forks and Area.

A family is receiving a brand new home thanks to the Red River Valley Habitat for Humanity. Andria Ruud and her three children have struggled to find a stable home since the unexpected death of her husband.
The Habitat for Humanity is a nationwide organization that builds homes for families in need. In order to qualify for one of these homes applicants must not qualify for a traditional mortgage. Ruud and her children moved into her mother's house after the death of her husband. After she was unable to find a place on her own she decided to apply at Habitat for Humanity and was surprised when she was approved. They laid the foundation for the home last fall but builders are hoping to finish the five bedroom home by April with the help of volunteer workers and donations.
Ruud: "When I moved back home I wanted to secure a nice stable house for my kids and I, after such tragedy of losing their dad and my husband."
Ruud's home is the first project Habitat for Humanity will be working on in 2013.
We are currently seeking committed volunteers to serve on our committees and help with builds. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up!
