APNewsBreak: Habitat for Humanity gets $100M gift

ATLANTA – The housing market may be sputtering, but Habitat for Humanity International is getting a $100 million jolt.

The nonprofit group tells The Associated Press the gift from J. Ronald Terwilliger will help it build 60,000 homes worldwide. It’s the largest individual contribution in Habitat’s history.

Terwilliger, an Atlanta-based developer, says he hopes it will offer the world’s neediest more access to decent, affordable homes.

He says he also wanted to “inspire others to make the commitment to support affordable housing.”

The gift is one of the largest in recent years to a group devoted to social services, according to the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University. A center official called it “remarkable.”

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
