Habitat for Humanity seeks women to help begin building next Habitat home

A crew of women volunteers will begin the framing of the Habitat for Humanity of Morrison County house Friday, Sept. 14.

“There are a limited number of morning and afternoon openings available, so please call our office at (320) 616-2084 to sign up if you’d like to help.  Ladies will work under the direction of site supervisor Dale Peterson,” said Angie Petersen, secretary of Habitat’s Board.

Work shifts will be from 9 a.m. – noon, and from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.  Lunch will be provided for both groups. The home address is 905 13th St. S.W., Little Falls.

The women will be helping to build the home with the Shannon Goebel family as part of Habitat’s Women Build program, which brings women from all walks of life together to be part of the solution to poverty housing.

“We are very excited about having these ladies work side by side with our partner family,” said Kathy Kahlhamer, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Morrison County. “Their hard work will help make the dream of homeownership a reality for the Goebel family.”

Habitat for Humanity is an ecumenical Christian ministry that welcomes to its work all people dedicated to the cause of eliminating poverty housing. Since its founding in 1976, Habitat has built, rehabilitated, repaired or improved more than 500,000 houses worldwide, providing simple, decent and affordable shelter for millions of people.

“Another way to support the build is to make a financial contribution, which is tax deductible,” said Petersen. “Contact our office at (320) 616-2084.”
