Show me the money!

On Tuesday, August 8 North Platte Area Habitat for Humanity was the grateful recipient of a $5,000 grant courtesy of Great Western Bank's Making Life Great grant program. We had applied for this grant earlier in 2017 to put towards the purchase of a piece of property we'd hoped to acquire that is large enough to allow us to build nine homes on.

The good folks from Great Western Bank, Kathleen Matthews, Judy Leitner, and Leland Poppe met us at the site to present the "big check." Receiving that check, from Habitat (left to right) Galvin Parker, Board of Directors President, Dalene Skates, Executive Director, Mary Higgins, Board of Directors Secretary and Lawrence Ostendorf, Board of Directors Treasurer.
