Paddling together makes for great results!

  • All proceeds benefit Gadsden-Etowah Habitat for Humanity’s mission to build simple, decent, affordable housing for partnership families.
  • As a Christian ministry, Habitat works toward this vision by building strength, stability and self-reliance in partnership with families in need.
  • Houses are built with local volunteer labor.
  • The houses are sold to each family at no profit and with no interest.
  • We are grateful for generous community support and ask for your volunteer help!


Thanks to everyone who made this year a big success!
