Red Bookcase and Welcome Home

The Red Bookcase

Each child moving into a Habitat home beginning in 2013 will receive a small two-shelf red bookcase along with a minimum of six age appropriate books.  Each bookcase will have the child's name inscribed on a nameplate.  The red bookcases are being built by Habitat volunteers.

To get information on current project needs, please contact Carol Havens, Volunteer Project Manager, at (812) 453-8654.

Update: Habitat is not currently seeking book donations at this time. Thanks to the generosity of the community, we have a substantial amount of books already in stock for the children of Habitat partner families.
