Armstrong Habitat for Humanity was fortunate to be one of three local non-profits chosen by EQT to receive proceeds from their sponsored event Meet Your Pittsburgh Sports Heroes held on October 26, 2013.
This event was a huge success welcoming many sports fans of all ages. Interviews led by Ellis Cannon walked many people down memory lane while others heard about the amazing plays for the first time. Fans were able to take photographs and get autographs from each one of the sports celebrities. After filling up on food and refreshments, guests also had the chance to participate in an auction, basket raffle, and other fun activities.
Thank you EQT and all who helped make this event one of our organization’s largest fundraisers of the year.
Armstrong Habitat for Humanity hosted a 5k race on Saturday, August 3, 2013 to raise funds for future home repairs and roof replacements for qualifying families in Armstrong County. It was a flat course that began and ended at the new Richard G. Snyder YMCA in Kittanning, PA.
The race started in the rain but that dreary weather held no one back. Our organization welcomed over 130 participants this year. We gave out many awards and numerous door prizes. The annual Raise the Roof 5K Race was a true success thanks to all the participants, hard-working volunteers, and generous donations from the sponsors.
Awards were given to the top 3 overall male and female participants and to the top three male and female participants in each age group. To view the race results, please click on the links below.

On May 9, 2013 the Armstrong Habitat for Humanity participated in the ‘Day of Giving’ program. This program was sponsored by the Armstrong County Community Foundation to encourage giving to local charities. To promote this program, we sponsored a Champagne Garden Reception in April. We were fortunate to have this event hosted by the Stoney Creek Bed and Breakfast owned by Lou and Sandy Greco. At this event we toured the newly renovated bed and breakfast along with their beautiful gardens. This wonderful event resulted in our organization receiving contributions from the ‘Day of Giving’ totaling over $14,000!
Thank you to all who helped and contributed!
