Greater Nashua Habitat for Humanity announces Playhouse Project fundraiser
HOLLIS – The Greater Nashua Habitat for Humanity recently announced that the fundraiser for this year’s Playhouse Project will be held on Sept. 15 at The Biergarten at Anheuser-Busch in Merrimack.
For this particular fundraiser, the objective will be to secure $15,000 to build six playhouses.
“We love this new fundraiser, which helps us to tell the community more about the Habitat for Humanity cause, while partnering with sponsors to build playhouses that ultimately provide children with a safe place to play and imagine what home means to them,” said Executive Director Christa Tsechrintzis. “This can be a great team building activity for our sponsor organizations.”
The playhouses are slated to be built in September at the Anheuser-Busch site. Tsechrintzis said the construction should be completed in one day, adding that last year’s build was finished in five hours. All construction materials will be provided by Habitat for Humanity.
Some of the sponsors from the 2022 Playhouse Project included Kimball Physics, the United Way of Greater Nashua, Positive Street Art and Law Family Companies.
Last year, the Kimball Physics playhouse, complete with a space and cosmos theme, was raffled off to the Barulli, Hickey and Tsechrintzis families who then donated it to St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
“Our Citizens Committee looks for opportunities to work within the community so we can fulfill our mission,” said James Popovitch, engineering manager at Kimball Physics. “We had an absolute blast working on this project. We even recruited staff outside of our Citizen Committee. We’ve garnered a strong reputation in giving back to the community.”
Last year’s Positive Street Art playhouse went to the United Way of Greater Nashua. It has since been customized to be used as a 24-hour food pantry drop off and is now located at the Crossway Christian Church on Main Dunstable Road in Nashua.
