2017 Hard Hat Lunch
About This Event
With our lunch this year, we wanted to continue the Hero theme and invited Fargo Police Chief David Todd to be our keynote speaker. Chief Todd is a wonderful man of faith and will be delivering his message, “Sprint to the End”, a message of using our gifts for the good of others.
We will also be joined by Danielle John, the future homeowner of our Hero Build. To us, Danielle is a hero as well. After enduring 5 years of being trapped in the world of human trafficking, she escaped and now helps other victims rebuild their lives. You won’t want to miss her story.
To top it off, we have an exciting announcement regarding our Executive Director!

Event to Support Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity
Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity (LAHFH) is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. LAHFH is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all. We partner with local businesses, churches and volunteers to help build homes with qualifying families. Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Most importantly, partner families play a large role in the building of the home. They invest 250 hours of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes and the homes of others. They also make interest-free mortgage payments which go into a fund that is used to build more houses.
