“Our holiday art contest crystallizes the real-life impact behind our programs through this yearly art depiction,” states Tammy Marine, Executive Director. “Gabriele Baber is a well-known and respected artist and a longtime supporter of Habitat. For that reason, her entry is particularly meaningful this year. We hope that our supporters, volunteers, shoppers, advocates, and event attendees will purchase an ornament as a reminder of their connection to Habitat for Humanity and how their efforts are improving living conditions for many in the Inland Valley. The ornaments also make great gifts to friends and staff to remind them of the importance of community service and giving back.
