Full Text

Habitat for Humanity Halton (HfHH) is is building a brand new home at 50 Dayfoot Drive with an anticipated construction start date of spring 2006. An information session and community meeting will be held tomorrow night (Thursday) at Salvation Army Community Church, 271 Mountainview Rd. S., starting at 7:30 p.m. Volunteers are needed to not only work on the building, but to provide refreshments and lunches to the builders. Anyone can volunteer. HfHH is able to match the level of volunteers' skills, or enthusiasm to the needs of the build. Safety equipment, such as hard hats, eye protection and safety gloves for all volunteers on the build will be provided by HfHH; however, volunteers are required to provide their own safety boots. All volunteers are provided with

free, mandatory health and safety training prior to beginning work on the build. This is the first Habitat home in Georgetown with more to be built. This home will provide decent, affordable housing and the pride of home ownership for a single mother with two young school-age children. HfHH, formed in 1999, and one of 67 Habitat non-profit affiliates across Canada, works in partnership with businesses, churches and community people from all walks of life, to serve those in need of decent, affordable housing by building or renovating houses so that families in the community can break free of the poverty cycle for generations to come.
