Habitat building volunteer base

Door County Habitat for Humanity is hosting a groundbreaking ceremony on June 13th at 3 p.m. and your help is needed to make sure they can host a dedication ceremony later this fall.

 

Some of the initial work is already underway at 864 Cherry Court where the organization is building its 49th home. As the home’s partner family, Abigail and her son have already been assisting the volunteers in the early stages of the building as they start to accumulate the sweat equity hours Door County Habitat for Humanity requires.

 

Executive Director Lori Allen says the start of every home build is exciting, but it needs its stable of volunteers to grow to keep the positive momentum going.

Allen emphasized that if you cannot make it to a build site they can always use volunteers in the ReStore.

 

While the groundbreaking marks the beginning of Home #49, a different event that happened last weekend marked the near completion of another. Door County Habitat for Humanity hosted a thank-you lunch for its volunteers that helped with Home #48, which involved a complete remodel of a donated house in Algoma. A dedication of the house featuring the partner family of Kim and Amber, will take place later this year.
