DONATION BENEFITS MIDCOAST HABITAT
Scott Horty, Owner and President of Camden Real Estate Company, recently gave $4,500 to Midcoast Habitat for Humanity (MHFH), an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International serving Knox County. The donation was his company's portion of the commission in a transaction in which Midcoast Habitat purchased a Rockport barn on 3.4 acres to be used as offices and a Habitat ReStore.
"We are thrilled to have Camden Real Estate's support as we establish a ReStore selling donated furniture, appliances, and building materials to the general public," said Tia Anderson, Executive Director of MHFH. She noted that five other affiliates in Maine have ReStores, and that they are a proven way for Habitats to generate funds to build more homes. "Our goal is to help as many hardworking families as we can, and with the support of the community, we're working toward that goal," she said.
Scott Horty founded Camden Real Estate Company in 1995 and has consistently supported community causes. "I'm pleased to make this donation to a cause I really believe in," said Horty. "I've been selling, building, and restoring houses for 40 years, and I've always been interested in incorporating recycled building material into my projects. Supporting Midcoast Habitat in their efforts to start their ReStore is a natural decision for me."
Midcoast Habitat is currently building their 23rd house on Lupine Terrace in Camden. To participate in the build, donate to the organization, or become involved in the new ReStore as a donor or volunteer, please contact Tia Anderson at 594-1859, or visit www.midcoasthabitat.org.
