WATERLOO – Habitat for Humanity volunteers will NOT be working at the 15 Mill Street site on Thursday, 6/14 or Saturday 6/16.
“We wish all our fathers and grandfathers a wonderful Father’s Day weekend,” said Karen Simon, board member.
The Habitat for Humanity Mill Street Home is progressing nicely, she said. Demolition is pretty much done and the construction team has begun to frame out rooms, closets and doorways. All the walls have been taken down to the studs and Volunteer electricians from Electrical Workers Union 840 have begun to run wiring in the bedrooms and living room. Last Tuesday evening, the floor on the main level was jacked up and volunteers next will begin to frame some new walls for the 1st floor bedroom.
Volunteers are always welcomed, especially on Saturdays. People can learn techniques and skills for rehabilitating an old house – skills they might be able to use on their own home repair projects. Or they might be able to share their skills with other volunteers. People who would like to volunteer should contact Patrice Giansante at email@example.com or call 315-568-62238 or show up at the construction site on work days. Work sessions are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-7 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8-4.
Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build homes or renovate existing homes to create decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold to those in need at no profit and with no interest charged. Mortgage payments received by the affiliate are used to build more homes.
