iTHINK Financial Credit Union has partnered with the Warrick Dunn Charities, Homes for the Holidays program, Aaron’s, and Habitat for Humanity of NW Metro Atlanta to make a single mom’s dream of homeownership come true.
On November 24th first-time homeowner and single mom to two, Sherkira, was presented her new home through Habitat for Humanity of NW Metro Atlanta. iTHINK Financial surprised Sherkira with a $10,000 worth of furnishings for every room of the new home from Aaron’s, Inc.
Warrick Dunn Charities founded Homes for the Holidays (HFTH) to honor Founder, Warrick Dunn’s mother’s dream of homeownership. The program partners with local community organizations to reduce the burden on new, single parent homeowners by fully furnishing their new house, providing down payment assistance checks, and stocking the pantry with food. HFTH was created from the belief that a better future starts with hope. Today, Warrick Dunn Charities has expanded from their namesake Homes for the Holidays into three additional programs: Count on Your Future, Sculpt, and Hearts for Community Service Scholarships. Together, their four programs are dedicated to strengthening and transforming communities by combating poverty, hunger, and improving the quality of lives for families academically, socially, and economically.
Sherkira is a hardworking member of the Douglasville community and a bus driver for Connect Douglas. A single mom to two teenagers, she had rented a house and has long dreamed of becoming a homeowner. In addition to the safety and security it will provide, she is excited to truly make it her own and leave a legacy for her family.
Michael Miller, President at iTHINK Financial stated, “We are beyond thrilled to have partnered with Warrick Dunn Charities and celebrate this homeownership milestone with Sherkira and her family. It was an honor to provide the furnishings for her new home. We believe that giving back to the communities we are in is vital. We are committed to improving the lives of families and giving back to those in need. It was exciting to surprise Sherkira with this gift, we wish her family has many years of memories here.”
