  • Anderson Fuel to Sponsor South Shore Habitat for Humanity’s annual Ride for Habitat on September 14, 2019

    Published on August 14, 2019

    HINGHAM AND WEYMOUTH : Anderson Fuel, a family owned and operated heating and cooling business on the South Shore is sponsoring the South Shore Habitat for Humanity (http://sshabitat.org), Ride for Habitat which will take place beginning in Hingham on Saturday, September 14, 2019.

    “Years ago I was approached by a friend to help,” said Gary Anderson, co-owner with Scott Anderson. “I have participated in several home build days and understand the need for affordable housing on the South Shore, and see this as a win for everyone involved.”

    This will be the first time Anderson Fuel has sponsored the Ride for Habitat. In addition, they have sponsored several home builds and the annual Golf Classic. Their sponsorship demonstrates an ongoing commitment to the mission of South Shore Habitat for Humanity.

    “We’re proud to be a 2019 sponsor and encourage other businesses to get involved as either riders or sponsors,” said Anderson. “It’s a wonderful way to help families realize their dream of homeownership.”

    Now in its 13th year the annual Ride for Habitat gives teams and individuals the opportunity to help build homes and change lives. Registrants for The Ride are asked to fundraise as part of the event; past participants have collectively raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help build several affordable homes for families on the South Shore.

    The Ride offers three routes for riders at all levels. Starting at 916 Main Street in Hingham, MA, the 50-mile riders will begin at 7:30 am, followed by the 25-milers at 9:00 am, and the 15-milers at 10:00 am. The route is designed to take riders through some of the South Shore’s most scenic areas.

    Crossing the threshold of a new home is a moment every family remembers and cherishes. Since 1986, South Shore Habitat for Humanity has helped 58 family partners realize that moment of joy and experience a lifetime of safe, healthy, affordable housing. The organization plans to build more homes in 2019 in the area it serves south and southwest of Boston, and needs support from its community to reach that goal.
