Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity Selling Hot Cocoa Bomb Kits

Now you can make your own delicious homemade treat. Homemade treats and gifts seem to mean just a little more, don’t they? The same is true for a family being able to call a place “home.” Help Habitat For Humanity bring their 2020 Faith Build family HOME and join them for this fundraising event.

“Join us for a virtual fundraising event where you and your family can join us on-demand to experience making this year’s latest craze – hot cocoa bombs! Registration is just $50 per family. You will receive a kit that includes the supplies to make up to 12 hot cocoa bombs. The hard part will be deciding whether you’ll keep them to enjoy or who you’ll share with as gifts.”

Your purchase of the hot cocoa bomb kit is a direct contribution to Habitat’s Faith Build home. In partnership with Thrivent, 100% of the funds raised (including the $50 purchase of the hot cocoa kit) is matched dollar for dollar. Not only will the hot cocoa bombs taste good, but you’ll feel good that you’ve made an impact to build a home for a family that needs and deserves a safe, decent, and affordable home.

Habitat for Humanity

Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity builds new construction homes in the Green Bay area and sells them to qualified families at no profit. The Habitat program provides benefits to our partner families and the Green Bay community. Families benefit from decent, affordable housing while the community benefits from the redevelopment of neighborhoods and an increase in tax revenue. The Habitat program does not give houses away. Families must spend “sweat equity” hours helping to build their home, pay a $900 down payment and make monthly mortgage payments. Homes are made affordable due to the volunteer labor used to build the home and the 0% interest mortgage provided by Habitat. To see what we’re working on now, check out our Current Builds page!

Habitat homes are build according to these three standard principles:

  1. Simple:
    Habitat houses are modestly-sized. They are large enough for the homeowner family’s needs, but small enough to keep construction and maintenance costs to a minimum.
  2. Decent:
    Habitat for Humanity uses quality, locally-available building materials. Habitat house designs reflect the local climate and culture.
  3. Affordable:
    The labor of volunteers and partner families, efficient building methods, modest house sizes and no-profit loans make it affordable for low-income families to purchase Habitat houses.

The first step in becoming a Habitat homeowner is to attend an informational Application Meeting. At the informational session, you will find out about our program, see what a typical Habitat home looks like, and learn how to accurately complete your application. Applicants and co-applicants must attend a meeting to receive an application; you will have 30 days from that date to turn in your completed application and required documents.  This meeting will take approximately 1 hour.  The application process takes approximately 60-90 days from the date Habitat receives your completed application. If you have additional questions or would like more information, please contact familyservices@greenbayhabitat.org.
