A Better Mid-South: Habitat for Humanity Home Team Huddle

A Better Mid-South: Habitat for Humanity Home Team Huddle

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Editorial by WMC Action News 5 General Manager Tracey Rogers:

There is no doubt we have a desperate need for safe places to live in our community.

That's why Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis is such an important part of ridding Memphis and the Mid-South of substandard housing.

If you plan to watch the Super Bowl this weekend, you can have fun with your family and friends and support Habitat for Humanity. The non-profit is holding its annual Home Team Huddle Fundraiser on Sunday.

It's pretty simple. Home Team Huddle participants are asked to host Super Sunday parties and collect donations during halftime for Habitat for Humanity. All donations collected will go directly to Memphis Habitat to help serve more families through home-building and repair programs.

Top fundraising hosts will also win prizes, including a grand prize trip to an NFL game complete with travel and hotel accommodations.

To sign up, visit the A Better Mid-South Facebook page. I encourage you to sign up today and remember, no donation is too small. If you have any questions, feel free to send me an email at abettermidsouth@wmctv.com.

Use this Super Bowl gathering as a time to help build A Better Mid-South.
