Update — June 3, 2014: We met our goal, and then some, for a total of $1,260 raised for Habitat for Humanity. Thank you to everyone who donated and stayed with us!
With help from the many guests who have found a home-away-from-home at The Dunes, we’re excited to again join forces with other Maine inns to help build warm, affordable homes for Mainers. For the third year, The Dunes will be a part of the Maine Innkeepers Association’s Hospitality for Habitat program. It’s a simple program, with a big benefit for both our guests, and a lot of Maine families.
Here’s how it works: plan to make a visit to The Dunes between April 25 and May 15, 2014, and your room will be be half-price with a $35 donation to Habitat for Humanity. Whether you stay two days or ten, with just one donation, your entire stay is 50% off. Of course, you’re welcome to donate more than $35.
Last year, Maine inns donated a total of $15,284 to Habitat for Humanity of Maine — a sum that helped weatherize and repair sixty Maine homes, according to Sue Inches, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Maine.
As for our own totals, The Dunes raised $590 last year, and $1,025 in 2012 — a hefty sum in just two and a half weeks’ time! We’re upping the ante this year and setting our fundraising goal at $1,200.
We’re very thankful to all of our guests who’ve already been a part of this program’s success! This year, we hope you’ll help again by telling a friend, family member or even a stranger about Hospitality for Habitat, or come and visit us yourselves.
