The Downtowner radio show welcomes Sabrina Lippman of Habitat for Humanity to the program on Thursday. This incredible organization has built homes throughout NY to help families that would not otherwise have the chance to own a home. The not-for-profit organization is based in the Financial District and is launching some great programs in Manhattan and Brooklyn, including a “Gingerbread Build” in SoHo, hosting the very successful “Women Build” event and many other fun and creative programs to help support the families that Habitat for Humanity supports. Their mission is to transform lives by building quality homes with families in need and by uniting all New Yorkers around the cause of affordable housing.
The 2nd half of our show will include a visit from Sheryl Katz, of Kids in the Game. This great organization is dedicated to developing New York City’s youth by providing opportunities through sports and fitness to the schools and communities they serve. Their goal is to encourage the next generation of leaders by instilling healthy habits, practicing an active lifestyle, and promoting personal growth through play and competition.
