Calendar

Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas & West Pasco Counties will be observing Juneteenth on Friday, June 18th (a day early) to allow all of our staff members the opportunity to observe. Our offices, constructions sites and ReStore locations are all closed; resuming normal business hours on Monday for the offices, and Saturday for the ReStores and build sites.
 
Dating as far back as 1886, this has been a day marked for celebration, education, and connection with the Black community, and we look forward to taking part in that continued commemoration.

“Juneteenth is a day of reflection, a day of renewal, a pride-filled day.  It is a moment in time taken to appreciate the African American experience.  It is inclusive of all races, ethnicities and nationalities – as nothing is more comforting than the hand of a friend.”

“Juneteenth serves symbolically, and in reality, as a reference point from which to measure and appreciate the progress and contributions made by African Americans to this society.”

“Juneteenth is a day on which honor and respect is paid for the sufferings of slavery. It is a day on which we acknowledge the evils of slavery and its aftermath.  On Juneteenth we talk about our history and realize because of it, there will forever be a bond between us.”

“On Juneteenth we think about that moment in time when the enslaved in Galveston, Texas received word of their freedom.  We imagine the depth of their emotions, their jubilant dance and their fear of the unknown.”

“Juneteenth is a day that we commit to each other the needed support as family, friends and co-workers.   It is a day we build coalitions that enhance African American economics.” 

“On Juneteenth we come together young and old to listen, to learn and to refresh the drive to achieve. It is a day where we all take one step closer together – to better utilize the energy wasted on racism. Juneteenth is a day that we pray for peace and liberty for all.”
