Giving Begins At Home

There's an old adage that claims "'Tis better to give than to receive." That holds even truer if the giving is to a good cause.

For more than 15 years, MCAP has been giving as a proud supporter of Habitat for Humanity® Canada, contributing over $2.6 million in cash and in-kind support, and countless volunteer hours from employees and industry partners.

Why? Because we believe everyone deserves a home to call their own.

Sadly, a continuing shortage of decent and affordable housing across the country makes Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping families in need realize their home ownership dreams, as much of a community necessity today as it was when the Canadian chapter of the organization first began in 1985.

To date, MCAP has sponsored or co-sponsored the build of over 35 Habitat homes across Canada. Also, along with active participation in houseraising projects within their communities, each year, our employees donate to the organization through an internal fundraising campaign with MCAP matching their gifts dollar for dollar.

Year after year, the heartwarming stories - such as the Fraboni family, whose old living space had limited accessibility for their eldest son Thomas who is wheelchair-bound with cerebral palsy - continue to fuel our ongoing commitment to Habitat. We loved hearing how, when he reached the top of the wheelchair entrance ramp to the new home we helped build, Thomas could unlock the door with a remote control. Plus for the first time in his life, he had complete wheelchair accessibility to a kitchen, bathroom, and a bedroom of his own with loads of turning around room.

As an MCAP customer you, too, can "build" a gift that gives to others this holiday giving season through MCAP's Key to Hope http://www.mcap. com/residential/key-to-hope/learn-more program.

By simply adding a pre-determined donation amount onto your regular mortgage payment, you will be directly supporting Habitat for Humanity Canada's efforts to build homes for families in need.

From your home to a family in need's new home -- it's a holiday gift that will make a life-changing difference!

MCAP wishes you and yours a very happy and safe holiday season!
