2021 HANOVER HERO

For the third year, Hanover Habitat for Humanity will honor the heroes in our community at our Hanover HERO celebration. Webster’s dictionary defines Hero as “a person admired for achievements and noble qualities and one who shows great courage.”  We define a Hanover HERO as someone who fulfills this definition and in addition demonstrates the spirit of Helping Encourage Real Opportunities for our neighbors and community members We call these individuals Hanover HEROes.

HERO HOUSE?  New this year, all funds raised for our 2021 HEROes will go towards the construction of our HERO House.  Sherita is excited to be purchasing the sixth, and final, home in the neighborhood.  The average construction cost of a Hanover Habitat home is $100,000 (not including land and infrastructure costs).

HOW CAN I HELP?  Beginning on December 15, 2020, all cash donations received in the honoree’s name through midnight on February 28, 2021 will count towards the HERO House challenge.  By sharing this honor with friends and family, you can raise the funds through individual, corporate or foundation gifts.

  1. Make a single gift Make a gift in honor of a HERO in your life.  Then share your gift with the honoree and your friends and family – you do not have to share the amount of your gift*.  By sharing, it sends a powerful message to your network of friends, family and colleagues that this is important to you and you sincerely wish to make a difference in the lives of your community.
  2. Make a group gift Gather a group together and collect gifts for a specific hero – ex. A classroom or school would collect gifts to honor a HERO teacher.  Then share your gift with the honoree and your friends and family – you do not have to share the amount of your gift*.  By sharing, it sends a powerful message to your network of friends, family and colleagues that this is important to you and you sincerely wish to make a difference in the lives of your community.

*Hanover Habitat for Humanity never shares the amount of an individual gift.  Only the grand total received for an honoree will be shared.
