Pitman, NJ. (June 9, 2022) – Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity (GCHFH) is excited and grateful to announce that the 12th Annual “Build a House, Build a Dream” Golf Outing exceeded expectations, raising $30,000 in net proceeds that will help the affiliate complete their 51st house, located in Woodbury, and start 3 additional properties throughout Gloucester County. Once complete, GCHFH will have provided a safe, decent, and affordable place to call home for 4 families, seven adults and eight children.
“We want to thank all our participants, sponsors, volunteers, Bogey’s and Pitman Golf Course staff, as well as our own dedicated staff for making our annual golf outing an enormous success. As a direct result of the efforts and generosity of everyone involved, we will able to grow our mission this year, helping to build family strength, stability, and self-reliance through affordable homeownership” said Ashley Griffiths, GCHFH’s Executive Director.
