Local charities receive funding from Home for the Holidays

The charities that benefit from the Home for the Holidays project are now set to do more work.

Tonight, a check was presented to the four charities.

The check worth $140,000 will be split among St. Michael’s Center for Veterans, Habitat for Humanity, Faith House and Healing House.

Those in the Acadian Home Builders Association build shelter for their clients, and through this project, they enable the agencies to better provide shelter for those in need.

“These shelter-based organizations really need this money, not because they want to fill the coffers, but they need it to provide services. And, that’s why I think Acadiana comes together every year and gladly gives to Home for the Holidays because they know that it’s really going to support the community and make it a better place to live,” said KATC Communications General Manager Andrew Shenkan.
