Focus Kalamazoo

We need to send out a huge “thank you” to the local volunteer group, Focus Kalamazoo.  The small, grass-roots organization was founded by Tinashe Chaponda and Alex Nassaney, two students at Western Michigan University.  They have spent the past few years recruiting and coordinating volunteers for local non-profits, including Habitat, and have been a vital part of our work.

A few months ago, they applied for a grant on our behalf from the local Turn 2 foundation (a local non-profit started and sponsored by Derek Jeter, the New York Yankee’s phenom), and was awarded the grant — for $10,000 — to be used to help fund the construction of the Zero Energy Ready Home!  We cannot thank them (and the Turn 2 foundation) enough for their hard work and generosity on our behalf.
