Prince of Peace Donates to Adams Co Habitat

One of 14 covenant churches, The Memorial Church of the Prince of Peace, Gettysburg, recently gifted the nonprofit Adams County Habitat for Humanity with a $1,000 donation.

Covenant churches provide the organization with financial support as well as volunteer labor in their mission to provide homes with interest-free mortgages to deserving, low-income families in Adams County.

And the mission of Habitat for Humanity International is as follows: Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
