Lawrence County Habitat for Humanity
2020 Polar Plunge - Highland Presbyterian raised over $8,025 for The Habitat For Humanity Douse for a House Plunge! This marks the 10th year in a row that Highland has been the top fundraiser.
This organization is another non-profit supported by Highland Presbyterian Church. They offer a hand-up, not a hand-out, to individuals and families that qualify and are in need of the stable foundation of homeownership. Lawrence County Habitat for Humanity partners with their participants to build or renovate the houses that will eventually belong to them. Lawrence County Habitat for Humanity raises funds through repayment of the modest, interest-free mortgages and fundraising events like the annual Douse for a House winter plunge.
In 2019 Highland raised $6,400 of the more than $18,000 raised.
