Habitat4Homes Licence Plate Fundraiser

Habitat for Humanity Heartland is asking people to use the savings on the Ontario Licence renewal stickers to help support local affordable housing initiatives. 

Habitat for Humanity Heartland is asking people to use the savings on the Ontario Licence renewal stickers to help support local affordable housing initiatives. 

It used to cost $120 to renew your licence and that is how much Habitat for Humanity Heartland is asking people to donate. GM of Community Partnerships Sharon Brennan says that money will go a long way towards getting more people in houses. 

"We are grateful to local supporters Anna and Tom McInerney who brought us the idea for this campaign and made a donation to get the program started. Having the support of the community as we work to provide safe, decent and affordable housing means everything to us."

The McInerneys were happy to help. 

"We just thought that, rather than waiving these fees, the government could have directed the funds to the real needs of the community, and this is an opportunity for all of us to do that – together." 

In London, all of the money raised with go towards Heartland on the Thames, a twenty-unit property on Highbury Avenue featuring two-bedroom condos with some accessible units.

In the Brant-Norfolk region, the revenue will go directly to the Brantwood Project, a fifty-six-unit affordable housing complex also containing some accessible units. In both projects, the Habitat homes are geared to income and built above Energy Star standards. 

Members of the community from Brant, Elgin, Middlesex, Norfolk, Oxford and Perth counties can donate their $120 sticker fee at: habitat4home.ca/4homes in support of affordable housing, and will receive a removable static cling sticker to display in their vehicle window.
