As you are aware, a wave of closures, cancellations and postponements has unfurled as the COVID-19 pandemic has quickly evolved. I speak for all of us at Fox Valley Habitat for Humanity when I say our thoughts and prayers are with everyone impacted.
Like many other organizations, we have implemented changes for the safety of our families, staff, volunteers and community. It is our collective responsibility to stand in solidarity to do all we can to ensure the health and well-being of our neighbors.
Even in times of crisis, our work is so desperately needed — because everyone in this world should have a decent place to live. We must continue to stay together because when the urgency has lifted, the need for affordable housing will remain. Our generous supporters have helped sustain our work with families for 30 years, and we will weather this unprecedented challenge together. Fox Valley Habitat stands ready to accelerate our efforts with renewed energy and commitment when the time is right.
As much as we wish there was a playbook for our current situation, it has not been written yet. What has been written is the command to love our neighbors and to act with kindness wherever we can. We thank you for the close and loving community that you continue to help us build, and we appreciate your unwavering support.
In Faith and Partnership,
The Staff and Board of Directors of
Fox Valley Habitat for Humanity
