Adopt a Duck and Help to Build a House
Join us on Saturday, June 14, 2014 at 3:30 p.m. for the Great Tombigbee Duck Race at the Columbus Riverwalk. On June 14th, thousands will line the banks of the Columbus Riverwalk and watch 5,000 rubber ducks race to the finish line.
In celebration of our 25th year, Habitat for Humanity invites you to come to Singing on the River. Bringing your lawn chairs and blankets and get ready to listen to the great music our local churches have to offer! Adopt a duck or an entire flock! Proceeds from the Great Tombigbee Duck Race benefit Columbus-Lowndes Habitat for Humanity whose goal is to eliminate sub-standard housing in Lowndes County one family at a time.
About Columbus Lowndes Habitat for Humanity
Columbus Lowndes Habitat for Humanity builds homes for those who are unable to qualify for traditional financing. Our partner families must show an ability to pay for the home, they must be willing to partner by putting up to 300 hours of "sweat equity" into their home, and there must be a need. Many of our families have been living in substandard housing before they apply for a Habitat for Humanity Home. Since 1989, there have been 41 homes built and the 42nd is about to begin.
