Blue Jean Bash 2020

Thanks to your generosity, we raised over $325,000 during this year’s Blue Jean Bash! Here’s what these important funds mean for affordable homeownership opportunities in the Charlotte Region…

2+ new Habitat homes built

10 Critical Home Repair projects completed

1,000 Money Matters financial literacy attendees

it's not too late!

If you weren’t able to join us for the Blue Jean Bash or didn’t get the chance to make a gift during the event, it’s not too late to help us reach our goal and make an even bigger impact in the Charlotte Region.

Since the start of the pandemic, Habitat Charlotte Region has moved 26 families into their new homes and completed almost 50 Critical Home Repair projects – but we still have work to do!

Jasmine's story

During the Blue Jean Bash, Habitat homeowner Jasmine inspired us all with her amazing story of courage, hard work and vision of a better future for herself and her daughter Kyla. Learn more about Jasmine’s Habitat journey, plus watch her interview with Habitat Charlotte Region’s Shannon Hinson.

Throughout the evening’s presentations, we heard how racial inequality stifles economic mobility, and learned about ways that Habitat and our supporters, including presenting sponsor Ally Financial, are working hard to make positive impacts and improve economic mobility for all members of our community.

 


 

Habitat is committed to addressing the economic mobility and racial inequities in this community through homeownership. The tangible results of our work can be seen in the faces of the fourteen families that moved into their new homes during the height of the pandemic. Our construction team doubled down and focused on in process homes – working hard without volunteers they completed the projects and made the dream of homeownership a reality for these families.

President & CEO, Habitat Charlotte Region

 


 


At Ally we aim to “Do It Right” and that means making meaningful contributions that impact lives in the communities where we live and work.

We are focused on issues that impact economic mobility – and know that the stability that comes with home ownership can have a huge impact on the economic mobility of future generations.
