Phagans’ Fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity

As prices continue to plummet, Habitat for Humanity (www.habitat.org) and other housing agencies are rushing to buy land for future home sites.

Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East has launched a campaign to build a four-year inventory of buildable lots, or about 135 construction sites.

The average price paid for residential land in the Portland area has dropped 44 percent in the past three years, to about $166,000, according to the Regional Multiple Listing Service.

Phagans’ School of Hair Design has announced a hair-cutting fundraiser to help in this effort. Services for that day by the students will be haircuts and/or manicures.

Phagans’ School of Hair Design will be putting on this event on Thursday June 3, 2010 at the NE campus, 1542 NE Weidler Street, Portland, Oregon. The event will run from 6:30 a.m. until 9:00 p.m.

The goal of the school is to raise $6,000.00. For more information call Deborah Mathews at 503-239-0838.
