Armstrong Habitat for Humanity will be sponsoring a Champagne Garden Reception on April 27, 2014.
At the event, we will recognize last year’s accomplishments and outline this year’s projects and goals. We will also encourage guests to participate in the annual Day of Giving on May 8, 2014. The Day of Giving is a donation program that matches contributions given to Armstrong Habitat on that day.
This year we are fortunate to have the Champagne Garden Reception hosted by Jim and Lynn Ramage. They will offer guests a guided tour of their beautiful estate and gardens along with delicious hors d’oeuvres, deserts, and refreshments.
To request an invitation, please contact Michael McElhaney, Executive Director ~ (724)467-2771 or Mike@ArmstrongHabitat.org
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!
