Lutherans Demonstrate Love in Action
Got a lot that needs to be cleared out, mowed, or trimmed up? Call a Lutheran! Members from Trinity Lutheran in Sherman was part of a nationwide effort called “God’s Work; Our Hands.” Besides completing many other local projects, they prepped the lot 301 W. Bond in Denison for building the next Habitat home. THEN, they donated a new chainsaw and other outdoor tools. Thanks, Trinity Lutheran!
New Family—New Home!
The building has begun! Rosa Longoria and her children are very excited about their soon-to-be new house at 301 W. Bond, right next door to Soloman and Kodi’s home.
We need volunteers! Are you part of a group that wants to build with us? Click here or on the Build Info button in the menu bar to check the schedule for availability, then contact us.

Help Fill A Home With HOPE!
Our next house will be started in Denison this fall. Would you please help us fund this new house? For each gift of $50, you would be providing one square foot of construction costs for another deserving Grayson County family.
At the time of the wall raising ceremony, our square-foot donors will have their own one-foot squares painted onto the concrete foundation in bright blue paint. In your square, we would list your name, or if you prefer, you may designate someone in whose honor or memory you are donating. We hope you will join us for the wall-raising ceremony for this house at 301 W. Bond, Denison, TX on Saturday, October 3 at 10:00am. Click here to see more information about the Square Foot Club.
Amazon + Habitat = Lots of Smiles!
Millions of people are Amazon shoppers! The new AmazonSmiles program provides a way for Amazon to give back a portion (0.5%) of your shopping dollar to the charity of your choice.
Here’s how it works: When you want to make a purchase at Amazon, don’t go to amazon.com! Instead, go to www.smile.amazon.com. You will be asked which charity you want to support. Type in Habitat for Humanity of Grayson County. Then, shop as usual. Everything else about shopping is the same– your discounts, free shipping, and any of your other perks. We will receive a check once a quarter based on supporters’ purchases. You might want to bookmark it!
Your donated car can help build a house!

There’s almost nothing better than curling up with a good book on a chilly day, especially with one of Diana Cosby’s romantic suspense novels set in medieval Scotland. But one thing even better is building a warm, safe, and secure Habitat house for a deserving family. It gives families more than just a home; it provides a foundation on which to start their future and build their dreams.
Diana’s readers are working to build such a house. As readers send contributions to Habitat for Humanity of Grayson County, watch the bookshelf fill with every donation. The goal is to fund an entire home – $55,000, in order to start construction on a new house of dreams. Send your donation via PayPal using the Donate button below or donate funds the old-fashioned way—a check works just fine!
Send checks to Habitat for Humanity of Grayson County, P.O. Box 2725, Sherman, TX 75091.
