St. Pauly Shed for Habitat for Humanity
Seven (7) churches including Aldersgate United Methodist, Bethany Presbyterian, Greece Baptist, Greece United Methodist, Hope Lutheran, Messiah Lutheran and Trinity Episcopal, form the Greece Coalition of Churches. This coalition raises money to build affordable new homes through Habitat for Humanity.
The St. Pauly Shed is a major fundraiser for the Greece Coalition Habitat for Humanity project. Community members drop off clothing at the clothing shed. St. Pauly Textile, Inc. purchases the clothing from the local community organization. The community organization uses the money that it receives in order to support its mission or complete important community projects. St. Pauly Textile, Inc. distributes that clothing all over the US and world to organizations such as foreign governments, relief organizations, the U.N., private companies, and the U.S. government.
In 2022, 65,170 pounds of clothing were donated to the shed managed by the Greece Coalition of Churches. This was enough to clothe an estimated 12,005 people all over the world. Based on this volume of clothing, our Greece Coalition received $2,606.79 towards our Habitat for Humanity house build.
