A matching fund campaign has been set up at Fayette Savings Bank in La Grange,

Flatonia and Schulenburg to benefit the Fayette County Habitat for Humanity.

A generous donation of $20,000 from an anonymous donor will match donations

from the general public dollar-for-dollar up to that amount.

After the devastating floods from Hurricane Harvey last August, a similar

matching campaign fund to benefit the Knights of Columbus Hall and Second

Chance Emporium was conducted through Fayette Savings Bank, generating

donations to each cause in excess of $100,000.

“We are very grateful to the donor for the initial $20,000 gift, and feel that

donations from the public, in any amount, will add up to reach the $20,000

match, essentially raising $40,000 for our organization,” said Leonard Leffler,

president for FCHFH. “Donations to the campaign will allow FCHFH to continue its

mission of building homes, communities, and hope.”

In the campaigns for the KCs and Second Chance, there were donors who wanted

to contribute to the “matching side” of the campaign. That can once again be

done in this campaign, but as before, donations must be $5,000 or larger to go to

the matching side.

So if a donor gives $5,000 to the matching side, that $20,000 grows to $25,000

and so on, allowing more potential for the end result of the campaign to be

higher.

To make a donation, stop by any of the Fayette Savings Bank banking centers in La

Grange (111 E. Travis), Flatonia (204 N. La Grange), or Schulenburg (87 N. Kessler)

and advise you want to donate to the Habitat for Humanity campaign.


“We are pleased to facilitate this fundraising campaign for this worthy cause,”

said Wade Mozisek, president of Fayette Savings Bank. “One of our slogans is

Neighbors Helping Neighbors. This is just one way we can do something toward

that mission.”

Since its foundation in 2005, Fayette County Habitat for Humanity has built six

single-family homes and assisted many neighbors with critical home repairs.

The organization is currently building two additional homes for families who were

displaced by Hurricane Harvey.

“Many, many hours of rewarding work go into building a home,” Leffler said.

“Volunteers are the most important part of our success and mission. No special

expertise is needed. There are nails to be driven, walls to be raised, and shelter

to be given to provide a decent, affordable home for one more fortunate family in

Fayette County.”
