Habitat gears up to build second home in Williams
Groundbreaking ceremony to be held May 15
WILLIAMS - Williams Area Habitat for Humanity (WAHH) will have a groundbreaking ceremony at their new home site located at 412 E. Edison on May 15 at 2 p.m.
Jamie Worden has been selected for the new home out of nine applicants. This is the second home built by Habitat for Humanity in Williams.
Construction of the home will begin this month. Bill Baptist has agreed to be the building site coordinator for the home but many more volunteers will be needed to complete the project. The first home was completed with the help of 174 volunteers.
Williams Habitat for Humanity depends on fundraisers to raise money needed to build these homes. The community has been very supportive. Fundraisers include two Grand Opry Nights per year, an annual golf tournament (Sept. 17) and habitat member contributions from money earned working at the Polar Express during the holiday season.
This year, Habitat will hold a yard sale June 3-4 at the First Baptist Church located at the corner of Seventh Street and Grant Avenue from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. each day. Planning construction work around the house this summer? The yard sale just might have something for your project.
WAHH meets the first Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Community United Methodist Church at 127 W. Sherman. Volunteers are encouraged to stop by and sign up.
