"Hips and HeArt for Habitat" Fall Gala
On October 8, 2016, TAHFH will host a Fall Gala at the Tahlequah Armory. The theme for this year's gala is "Hips and HeART for Habitat." Entertainment will include a dance performance by the Rose-Idic Tahlequah Raks Belly Dance Troupe. An art show will also be part of the event, which will include an opportunity to bid on an original work of art from an artist in our community. Advance tickets, which will be on sale August 15, 2016, are $30 each. Anyone interested in donating a piece of art, or wanting to help with this event, is invited to call Traci Clark at 918.453.1332. Art rules are: The art must fit in a 5x5 space, and can be of any medium.
Work on the 1700 square foot addition to the TAHFH ReStore has been completed. The ReStore addition provides much-needed additional floor space to display the store's growing collection of items for sale, and the new loading dock helps store employees load and unload heavy items through the new 12-foot rolling door.
We are reaching out to the community and all of Cherokee County to help us spread the word about donating furniture, doors, windows, hardware, tools, televisions, housewares, collectibles, cell phones, etc. We ask that all donated items be in good working order, and remember that your donations are tax-deductible. Call 918.822.7201 to donate items to the ReStore.
We wish to thank those individuals and businesses that generously donate items to the ReStore. Also, a big THANK YOU to our volunteers who give of their time to help organize, clean, display items, and assist our customers.
ReStore is located on the corner of First and College Avenue, in
the west end of the TAHFH building. The ReStore phone number is 918-453-2720.

Paint and Repair Projects
Since 2009 Tahlequah Area Habitat for
Humanity (TAHFH) has completed a total of 35 painting and repair projects called
A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) and Critical Home Repair (CHR). ABWK is
an exterior painting project and CHR does repairs that affect the health
and safety of the homeowner. The Valspar Paint Corporation has donated
the paint we use for both new construction and ABWK. Other repairs to
the outside of houses have been done, such as patching or replacing
roofs and repairing porches and windows. This year we are continuing
these efforts through donations of time and money. For example, the
Tahlequah Community Foundation funded a repair to the porch of an
elderly lady, and employees of Fairfield Marriott in Muskogee helped
paint the home of one of our homeowners.
