Oak Creek Homes, a manufactured home dealer in Lynden, has announced their 2010 Summer of Giving charity donation recipients.
Owners Gerry & Diane Hansen will make a $500 donation for every home sold in the months of July, August and September. With a goal of donating in excess of $5,000, the Hansen’s say this is a chance for families to make their new home purchase count towards helping those less fortunate.
In 2009, Oak Creek Homes worked with the Opportunity Council to provide three new homes to deserving Whatcom County families. As the featured charity for July, each $500 donation will assist The Opportunity Council efforts in serving homeless and low-income families and individuals.
In August, each new home buyer will be able to choose a Whatcom County Food Bank for a $500 donation, assisting them to continue providing local families with food and basic household needs.
The Smile Train has been selected as the honored charity for September. Each $500 donation will allow the Smile Train to provide life-altering cleft palate surgery for two children both here and abroad.
