Contributing to Shawnee’s Habitat for
Humanity is a great way to make a difference in our community.
We rely on the generosity of local individuals,
churches, and businesses to carry out our mission. Donations of
funds, materials, property, or professional services are greatly
appreciated. All donations are tax-deductible.
In addition, because we donate 10 percent of all
unrestricted donations to Habitat for Humanity International's
building efforts overseas, a financial contribution to Shawnee
Habitat for Humanity makes a difference the world over.
Tools and Supplies
In addition to construction materials, Shawnee Habitat
for Humanity is frequently in need of tools, building supplies and
office supplies. Our wish list outlines the many ways you, your
company, school or organization can contribute to the mission of
building decent, affordable homes, please contact the Habitat office
Donate Professional Services
Pro-bono work by lawyers, licensed architects,
engineers, surveyors, and other professionals helps us to keep our
costs down, so that we can build more homes.
If you would like to donate professional services,
contact us at 214-0434.
Sponsor a Home
The mission of Habitat for Humanity of Shawnee is to
provide struggling families with a simple, decent place to live. The
gift of home sponsorship will change the lives of a family today,
and for generations to come. A Habitat house is more than a house.
It is a home. It builds friendships, it is a symbol of hope, it
enhances lives, it improves health, it deepens faith and it bridges
With cooperation and communication, this home will be
a life-changing and life-long memory for all involved. Sponsoring a
Habitat home means that you are providing $30,000 for the materials
to build the home. Would you consider providing the funds necessary
to build a Habitat home in Shawnee and extend the hand-up to a
family in need?
FAITH BASED RELATIONS
Shawnee depends upon the support of the faith communities in our
area for volunteers, prayer and donations. If you are a member of a
faith community in our service area and would like to arrange for
your group to volunteer, to make a donation, or would like to have
someone come speak to your group, please contact the Habitat office
Ideal for groups

groups, and/or businesses to provide lunch for our volunteers on the
construction site. Lunches are needed for 10-15 people on

This is an
excellent way to be involved! You may come out to the work site and
bring the lunch yourself, in order to see the work that is being
done and to meet volunteers and construction staff or we will be
happy to come and pick it up. Anything from pizza to peanut butter
and jelly will be greatly appreciated.
