[Lehigh Valley, PA] November 30, 2021 – Habitat for Humanity of the Lehigh Valley and BSI Corporate Benefits have teamed up to host a “Home for the Holidays” Gingerbread House Challenge.
The competition, launching Wednesday, December 1, 2021, aims to raise funds to support Habitat for Humanity’s mission to build simple, decent homes for hardworking, low-income families in the Lehigh Valley. To date, Habitat Lehigh Valley has built 126 homes for local families.
“With the holiday season right around the corner and winter quickly approaching, the understanding of home holds much more meaning. Home is where we stay warm and dry from the outside elements, where decorating with family becomes tradition and where meals are shared around the kitchen table,” said Jessica Elliott, Executive Director of Habitat Lehigh Valley. Habitat for Humanity exists so every person has the opportunity to feel the stability that homeownership brings. As a community, we can all bring hope and assist in being part of the affordable housing solution. This contest is a meaningful and fun way to be a part of helping hardworking, local families build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.”

In our support of Habitat for Humanity, we are helping to provide the opportunity for families to establish true roots in the communities where we live, work, and play every day.
