Platinum Books is proud to support various community endeavours and has been a supporter of Habitat for Humanity Manitoba for almost ten years.
Owner Greg Libbrecht cycles and raises money in the Ride Around the Lake fundraising event. The 2015 Ride Around the Lake will take place from September 10th to 13th. Cyclists will be participating in a 4-day ride along beautiful Lake of the Woods in support of Habitat for Humanity.
Habitat for Humanity Winnipeg was incorporated in 1987 with the vision of helping to eliminate poverty housing in Winnipeg. Today, by mobilizing volunteers and community partners like Platinum, Habitat for Humanity Manitoba works with people from all walks of life to build safe, decent, affordable housing for purchase by low-income working families.
This worthy cause is all about providing deserving families a ‘hand up’ in life, not a ‘handout’. The families put in their share of sweat equity, contributing hundreds of hours to the construction of their future home.
We are happy to be part of the Habitat for Humanity family and hope to continue helping Habitat families long into the future.
