Make a Donation to Habitat in Honor of Alan Griffith

Author: Scott Puthoff/Tuesday, June 29, 2021/Categories: News, Adult News, Outreach News

Good Shepherd has a well-established and joyful partnership with Habitat For Humanity of Greater Cincinnati.  The impetus for that partnership came through Good Shepherd member, Alan Griffith.  Alan made his living as a builder/businessman.  His “second career” was volunteering as a project manager for Habitat and helping to form Habitat’s East-Side Coalition of Churches that Good Shepherd is a member of.  Alan had a love for helping people and he found a way to express that love through the ministry of building houses.

Alan died in April of 2020 at the age of 88.  To honor Alan’s work with Habitat an anonymous donor gave a $60,000 gift to Habitat of Greater Cincinnati to help fund the construction of a side-by-side house in Alan’s memory.  Additionally, the Good Shepherd Church Council voted to make a $20,000 donation to Habitat of Greater Cincinnati in Alan’s name to help with the cost of the side-by-side.  The money will come from undesignated outreach funds. 

The Council also wanted to invite members and friends of Good Shepherd to make a donation in Alan’s honor to add to our $20,000 congregational gift.  Please make your donation by July 31, either by check (put Habitat-Griffith in the memo line) or you can give online here:

Alan would be pleased to know that two families will have a permanent home in Cincinnati through the ministry of Habitat.  Let’s honor the work Alan did among us and make this vision of “his” side-by-side a reality!  The dedication of the side-by-side houses is tentatively set for Sunday July 18 at 2pm.  The homes are located at 1201 Ryland in Bond Hill.  Good Shepherd members are welcome and encouraged to attend.  More details coming soon!

Gifts for Habitat Families:  Special thanks goes to quilters Tina Morawski and Pat Stratman for making a quilts that will be given to the families moving into the side-by-side Habitat House being dedicated in Alan Griffith’s memory.  One quilt is currently on display on the wall in Good Shepherd’s lobby.  Roy Johnson will also build a benches as a gift for families, in addition to crosses for their homes.  Thanks to Tina, Pat and Roy for sharing helping these families feel our love!
