A closing held any way, even via Zoom makes for a great day, but TWO closings in one day makes this a FANTASTIC FRIDAY! The family pictured is already a land trust family who grew, and needed a bigger home. Luckily for them, and us, and the neighborhood, a larger land trust home became available when another family moved out of the area. As this family prepares to move into their new, larger home, our 70th homeowners prepare to move into the home they are leaving behind. We are so proud to be able to keep this family in the neighborhood and to welcome our 70th homeowners all in the same day! Thanks to everyone who brought these homeowners across the finish line, and 3 cheers for permanent affordability!
We had a little fun with this photo shoot recognizing the M&T Charitable Foundation and M&T Bank for their generous gift to our organization earlier this month. Huge thanks to these folks for taking time out of their busy day to snap these pics: Vice President Susan Miller Bell, Senior Relationship Manager, Matthew Williams Sr., and Operations Coordinator, Sarah Wiser.
Once Colleen gets that big check shoved in her purse, we'll use the funds to complete renovations on our next project house; a duplex on University Drive, which will become permanently affordable home ownership opportunities for 2 households. We are so grateful for M&T's support during this critical time so that we can keep bringing more people home!
We had a STUPENDOUS Centre Gives, thanks to our amazing homeowners and community. Thank you to everyone who shared a little sunshine with us! We raised over $9000 from 82 donors. Wowza!
Homes in the State College Community Land Trust house the essential workers and neighbors who are helping us all make it through this critical time. Bring more people home by supporting the State College Community Land Trust during #CentreGives! May 12 & 13 at centregives.org
