Why Huddle for Habitat?

Why HUDDLE for Habitat?


 

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis is asking football – and Habitat - fans to host MX Skill Master HOME TEAM HUDDLE parties in their homes, businesses, schools or houses of worship on Sunday, Feb. 2 during the biggest pro football game of the year.

With less than two weeks to go to the BIG GAME, your party planning is probably in full swing. Emailing. Putting the call out on Facebook. Making your allegiance to the Denver Broncos or Seattle Seahawks known. You’re likely planning your menu and strategizing about just how you can make sure everyone sees the TV...

 

Remember those 3-D glasses for the Super Bowl a few years back?!

No doubt, it will be a great party. But is your Super Sunday party a party with a purpose? We hope you'll consider making your party a HUDDLE for Memphis Habitat.

Football and Habitat?

You might wonder what football has to do with Habitat? The connection may not be clear at first. But, think again. Think about what a football watch party is all about – fellowship with friends and family in one of your homes, in a place where you feel comfortable.

That place may not exist for some of the families who apply for Memphis Habitat’s program. Some don’t know where they’ll be living next week, next month or next year. Some are overcrowded, with three or four people to a bedroom or sleeping on couches. Still others live in substandard conditions or with burdensome utility bills in properties that aren’t energy-efficient.

Why should you HUDDLE for Habitat? It’s simple. By hosting a fundraising party for Memphis Habitat, you’ll help families own decent, affordable homes for the first time or help low-income homeowners in the Uptown neighborhood make desperately needed home repairs. At Habitat, we say building - and now repairing! - homes, changes lives, and HOME TEAM HUDDLE helps us do just that. The video below will give you a glimpse at the difference the dollars you raise can make.

 

Next year, thanks to your help, more families will have homes in which they can gather with friends and family to fellowship over a meal and a football game.
