Kiwanis-Habitat getting in on ground floor at new house site
|Middlesex Kiwanians and other volunteers work on the new Habitat home in Deltaville.|
After several rain delays, early last Saturday morning volunteers from the Middlesex Kiwanis Club joined with Habitat for Humanity Middlesex members to erect the sub-floor of Habitat’s first Deltaville home. Led by Mike Longest (construction supervisor) and Greg Chambers (president of both Middlesex Habitat and Kiwanis), the work was completed by noon.
The next step, after inspection, will be the return of the Kiwanis volunteers to install the sub-floor. Then one of the most exciting parts commences—building and erecting the walls for each room as this project slowly becomes a home for a Middlesex family.
Habitat builds homes for qualified families in Middlesex. These families will have a 0% mortgage and will need to make the monthly payments, pay real estate taxes, and generally be responsible for all of the duties and responsibilities of home ownership many of us have.
The goal of Habitat is to make the dream of first-time home ownership possible and affordable for all. It is with the help and cooperation of our neighbors in Middlesex that we can reach this goal, one family at a time. One hundred percent of the cost of a home is shared by donations from individuals like you. The mortgage payments of the new homeowners, in turn, will help pay for part of the next family’s dream.
If you or your organization would like to help make a family’s dream come true, please contact Chambers at 804-832-9496.
