Building a Foundation with Habitat

Building a Foundation event is held at the Grass Wagon in Council Bluffs. It is a fundraiser that features “Salvage Art” from local artists. A live auction and silent auction are held while enjoying fun, food & spirits. Funds raised help improve the lives of low-income families in the community.

Nickels for Nails

Nickels for Nails is an ongoing fundraiser where individual groups do a month-long, day-by-day collection of coins based on their answers to certain questions, i.e. “Do you have a roof that is less than 20 years old? Put in a quarter for every year less than 20 years.”

If your Group is interested hosting a fundraiser please contact Glennay@habitatcb.org or by phone at (712) 328-9476 and materials will be sent for the group to hold this independent fundraiser.
