Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties and the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation (RMSFF) have launched a $175,000 challenge grant to fund the development of an affordable twin villa neighborhood in Bonita Springs. The “challenge” structure of this grant includes a call to action that is intended to inspire philanthropists, businesses and community members to join RMSFF in supporting Habitat’s project, by making their own fully tax-deductible, charitable contributions. The goal is to raise an additional $175,000 to match the grant by April 30, 2021. Funds raised through the RMSFF challenge grant will be used to develop land, which Habitat for Humanity purchased on Carolina Street last month, into buildable lots that will hold 14 critically needed homes for low-income families in need of a hand up. For more information on Habitat neighborhoods or to donate to the campaign, contact Vince Modarelli at 239.800.5205 or visit Habitat4Humanity.org.
