Starting this Saturday, March 7, SPS Habitat will be having a regular open house on site at 1800 Fairview Street in NE Olympia (between Miller and Ethridge Streets, very near the Olympia Little Theater on Miller). These open houses will take place between 9:30-11am on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month. It will be an opportunity for everyone in the community to see what the progress is with our Phase III homes, to meet some of our families who are currently working so hard to earn their sweat equity hours, and to meet some of the fantastic volunteers from throughout the community who are largely responsible for creating the Fairview Cottages development.
If you’re one of our financial supporters, this is a wonderful time to see exactly where your donations are going: modest, solid, extraordinarily well-built structures in a cottage community of 15 homes. And if you’ve considered making a donation but have not done so, this is an opportunity for you to ask questions and be reassured that those funds are being put to a very good use: enhancing the lives of families as well as the community as a whole.
An added bonus on March 7th only: because this is our first such open house: our Executive Director, Curt Andino, and his wife, Ali, will be baking cinnamon rolls - a product which made them famous in their previous life in Syracuse, NY. Curt was the director of a jail ministry which had a regular fundraiser and these treats became must-haves for many of the attendees. We’ll even have some coffee to keep you warm!
