Every winter, many of our Western North Carolina neighbors face the cold without any safe heat in their homes. When you donate to MHO’s Family-To-Family Furnace Fund to repair and replace furnaces, you directly provide warmth to your community members who would otherwise endure a very cold winter.
Living alone in her mobile home, 72-year-old Constance faces severe mobility challenges. To help her face these challenges, MHO built a ramp at her home in 2011. Constance called on MHO again this year after smelling burning whenever her furnace was in operation. Thanks to your donations, MHO determined that the burning scent was a clear sign of an imminent fire hazard and quickly replaced her heat pump. Constance lives with peace of mind, knowing she can count on her home to be reliable and well-heated during these cold months. Penelope is 50 years old and lives in a mobile home. Penelope lives with seizures and a hip replacement. Initially, the MHO team arrived to re-pipe her home and restore water access. During this process, MHO learned she had been without safe heat for several years. Thanks to your donations, Penelope’s heat pump was replaced, and she now has both clean water and a warm home.
On cold winter mornings, many families, seniors, and low-income folks in our community are faced with choosing between a warm home or a warm meal. This year, the global pandemic continues to affect our most vulnerable populations. Many more of our neighbors are experiencing financial and health challenges due to the ever-changing landscape of COVID-19. With such unpredictability comes an increased demand for reliable, safe housing. Your donation can make a difference between a family suffering from the cold or being safe this winter. No families who qualify for help from MHO are turned away. But they often wait for funding to become available before we can address their furnace repair or replacement needs. Our mission is to bring families in from the cold, but we can’t do it without YOU! MHO has more requests than usual this year and we need your help! Can you help us meet our $65,000 goal to help 25 families stay warm this winter?
You can make a tax-deductible donation online at www.mtnhousing.org or through Paypal, so we can put your much-needed dollars to work right away. You can also mail a tax-deductible donation directly to MHO Family-To-Family Furnace Fund, 64 Clingman Avenue, Suite 101, Asheville, NC 28801. Thank you for your support and generous help this winter! Together, we can warm hearts and homes.
