Habitat for Humanity seeks more volunteers
SALISBURY – Rowan County’s Christian housing ministry – Habitat for Humanity of Rowan County – is seeking volunteers to help in the construction of three new Habitat homes this fall.
Expert instruction and supervision are available, so no construction experience is required. Everyone is welcome to participate. Individuals or groups who want to volunteer may work as much or as little as they wish. However, they must be scheduled into the building process with Habitat prior to coming to work.
To be included, phone Habitat Volunteer Coordinator Jane Hartness at 704-642-6292, ext. 101.
By mid-September, six Rowan County families will have become new homeowners this year through the Habitat ministry. The three additional homes being constructed this fall will raise the total to nine new homes in 2012.
In total, the citizens of Rowan County have built 93 homes with their neighbors in need. Each house stands as a tangible witness to the fact that people in this community care for each other, Executive Director Coleman Emerson said.
Emerson added that volunteers find the experience is meaningful, fun and good for everyone involved.
