FORT WAYNE, IN – The Fort Wayne Home & Garden Show is proud to begin a new chapter in giving back to the community. They have selected Habitat for Humanity of Greater Fort Wayne as their charitable partner for the 2020 show.

A portion of ticket proceeds/ revenue will be donated to Habitat to build a show sponsored home for a qualified Habitat family in our community during the 2020 build season. Both organizations are working with show exhibitors to contribute donations of materials, labor and more.

The build will take place in the newly developed Victoria Lakes Neighborhood of New Haven this Spring. The Home and Garden show is excited to support Habitat this year! Be sure to stop by the Habitat display at the show to learn how you can help this year.
