Koons Easton Toyota is helping to build homes and hope through a contribution to Habitat for Humanity Choptank’s affordable home ownership program. Here, John Guth, general manager, presents a donation to Habitat Choptank executive director Nancy Andrew. The contribution was made on day two of Koons Automotive Companies’ 25 days of giving program, which is an effort to invest back into the communities where the company does business.
Since 1992, Habitat Choptank has made home ownership possible for 59 families and currently partners with seven local families. These families are offered a “hand up” out of poverty housing. After completing “sweat equity” hours and pre-homeownership classes, these families will purchase homes that they helped construct and assume responsibility for repaying an interest-free Habitat mortgage. Habitat accepts applications for its home ownership program throughout the year.
