NWV Habitat Supporters: we need your help to save AmeriCorps programs from elimination

Dear NWV Habitat Supporters,

We need your help to Save Service. The United States Congress is considering legislation to eliminate funding for the Corporation for National and Community Service from the budget, jeopardizing thousands of service initiatives around the country.

With programs like AmeriCorps, Learn and Serve and Senior Corps at risk, your local community could potentially lose the support of critical organizations like NWV Habitat for Humanity, Teach For America, Foster Grandparents, Senior Companions, Habitat for Humanity, Public Allies, Retired Senior Volunteer Program, YouthBuild and many others, jeopardizing services in education, youth development, elderly services, healthcare and nutrition.

Congress is debating this bill now, and they’ll be looking to their constituents to see how much — or how little — the American people support these cuts.

We need your help. Tell Congress that we cannot afford to lose the critical services these programs provide in our communities.

Sign up today at www.saveservice.org for your local “Save Service District Day.” Visit your representative’s local office on February 25th to make sure they hear your voice.

Thank you for your service and we look forward to seeing you on the 25th.

Sincerely,

Jerry Ambris

Executive Director, NWV Habitat
