This Year's Recipient:
100% of this year's proceeds will benefit Hearts & Hammers. Hearts & Hammers is a construction ministry of Independence Hill Baptist Church that began in 1989. In years past Hearts & Hammers has completed large-scale, week-long projects such as Angels & Sparrows Soup Kitchen, Battered Women’s Shelter expansion, Nutrition Coalition expansion, and the Charlotte Chinese Baptist Church. Over the last three years Hearts & Hammers has taken on smaller, more frequent projects such as building handicap ramps, roof repair and replacement, and various home improvements to those in need.
This year, in partnership with four other organizations, Hearts & Hammers will be providing new homes for disabled veterans and their families. The homes will be built on five lots that are already owned by Hearts & Hammers in Denver, NC. The five lots all being in the same community provides a great opportunity for veterans to have neighbors who can truly relate to each other’s experiences.
The other organizations involved with this project are:
Purple Hearts Homes
- Patriot Charities
- Military Family Lifestyle Charitable Foundation
- Charlotte Bridge Home
