Dad’s Day Dedication Celebration!

This father’s day will be one to remember for our hard-working partner family father, Jaime Huante. You (and your dad!) are invited to join Jaime and his family, along with Habitat staff and supporters to celebrate the completion of the Huante’s new Habitat home at 2776 West Indiana St. on Sunday, June 16 at 4 p.m.

Leandra Huante will be making some delicious Mexican food for our guests. Those of you who have been out on the job site know she’s an amazing chef! There will be refreshments and other treats too.

We’ll also be raffling off a special dad’s gift for one lucky dad during the party. 

We’re very excited to congratulate the Huantes on their new home, and hope you’ll join us.

Huante Family
