First Federal Community Foundation presented $50,000 to Habitat for Humanity in Whatcom County. The money will go toward construction of the 52-unit Telegraph Townhomes in Bellingham. Habitat for Humanity recently partnered with Kulshan Community Land Trust to create the Habitat Kulshan Project to build the development.
