Proceeds will go to benefit Habitat Oakland County, which to date has built and renovated homes for more than 200 local individuals and families, conducted hundreds of critical home repairs and this year, initiated community improvements through our Rock the Block program. The work is important, according to Habitat Oakland County Executive Director/CEO Tim Ruggles, who said that despite the fact that Oakland County is among the wealthiest counties in the country, 10 percent of residents live in poverty and another 17 percent are one paycheck away from financial crisis.
“For hardworking families having trouble making ends meet, our program empowers them to take concrete steps towards stabilizing their future,” says Ruggles.
