As you know, at Valu Home Centers we believe in giving where we live. When our customers donate to our Habitat for Humanity campaign, those dollars stay in the neighborhoods where they were collected.
In order to keep the funds local to the Valu store where they were collected, we work with 15 different Habitat for Humanity affiliates to distribute the money raised across each of the markets we serve. Our grand total of $108,300 donated in our 25th year of fundraising will be split up among each of these affiliates to help further their individual projects.
