Habitat for Humanity completes 19th home

Central Peninsula Habitat for Humanity has just completed the 19th home in the central peninsula area. Nineteen families who at one time were living in unhealthy and/or unsafe conditions have accepted the partnership with Habitat, participated in home-building by working 500 hours on site, and have accepted the long-term responsibility of buying a home. Nineteen families are safer, healthier, and happier than before the partnership.

The nineteenth home build was successful because of the huge hearts of local community members who gave time and money. It is one thing for the family to to contribute — that is a requirement. It is quite another for folks in our community, most who hold down full time jobs to contribute time and make financial donations by giving us a big discount or offering their services for free. Thank you seems a small word for such a good deed — know that it couldn’t be more heartfelt or sincere.

The Habitat Board says thank you to TOAD’S Inc., Tom Seggerman and his crew, Tony Doyle, ICE (Dan Pankoski), Hanson’s Roofing, Glen’s Drywall, Home Depot, Spenard Builder’s, Dan’s Appliance, Rug Bones and Ernie Barber and Bill Schwager for electrical and plumbing. Thanks to Marty Slade (Everything Electrical) for assisting with the electrical. Many others who were on site day after day include Jason and Heather Daniels.

Lastly, thanks to Bill Radtke, Construction Chair, who, after being involved daily for the last 12 builds has resigned from that position. His leadership through the daily grind will be missed. Thank you Bill.
