Habitat for Humanity of Dutchess Needs Volunteers
POUGHKEEPSIE - Volunteers will come together with Habitat Volunteers on October 25th to repair and refurbish over 40 homes in the north side of Poughkeepsie. Thanks to a financial contribution from Thrivent Financial and a Donation of over 400 gallons of paint from Valspar, Habitat Dutchess will paint the neighborhood with “A Brush with Kindness”. For the second year Thrivent Financial, Steven Jones FIC and Habitat for Humanity of Dutchess County are planning to help homeowners spruce up their home and neighborhood through a unique partnership program called Thrivent Builds Repairs.
