With all the financial turmoil reported in the news lately, I expected that donations to Habitat for Humanity might suffer. This has basis in the fact that other charitable organizations have recently reported that donated funds have declined by as much as 15 to 20%. North St. Louis County Habitat for Humanity has not seen a decrease, but rather has enjoyed an increase of 3% in donations over the period from last November through February of this year as compared to the same period the previous year.

I certainly want to thank all of you who have made this happen; it took a lot of hard work on the part of both our volunteers and donors. Please keep up the good work! We are faced with an increasing challenge for the foreseeable future because while the financial situation is not predicted to improve rapidly, the need for affordable housing will become more acute.

With your on going support, we will continue to meet the challenge.

Thanks again,
Rod McPeak
