What’s Happening…

Kickoff at 35 Nelson Street- February 24 at 9:00 a.m.

we have been working to prepare this site for several weeks and are thrilled to have volunteers join us to start this project! 35 Nelson Street is the future home of Habitat homebuyers Christ and Stephanie and their two children.

Join us for a kick off event on February 24 at 9:00 a.m. as we celebrate the beginning of homebuilding on this property. 35 Nelson Street is the first Habitat home being built in Morris Cove so that adds even more excitement to an already joyous ceremony. Christ is also a proud veteran of the U. S. Army and is the third veteran to partner with us in owning a Habitat home. We thank him and his family for their service.

Looking to be the first to build on this home? Signups are open now for individual and group volunteers through March and additional dates will be added in the next few weeks. Log into VolunteerUp or email Allison Mangles for more info. April and May group volunteer dates are filling quickly so be sure to reach out soon if you would like to volunteer this spring. We look forward to seeing you on Nelson Street!
