Highland County Habitat for Humanity was recently chosen as a recipient of wall frames for the new home build in Lynchburg, along with a $2,000 grant to be used toward trusses for the home.
The donations were administered by Crossroads Missions via its Help Build Hope Program. Crossroads Missions worked in conjunction with hundreds of volunteers at the Parkside Christian Church in Cincinnati to build the framed walls and load them for transporting to Lynchburg. Once back in Lynchburg, there was a team of volunteers and Habitat board members ready to assist with the unloading the walls into storage until the groundbreaking occurs.
“We are thrilled to have been selected for these wonderful donations and with the application process underway, we are one step closer to placing a needy individual or family in to a home they can call their own,” said Elishia Krauss, executive director of Highland County Habitat for Humanity.
The walls were made to home plan specifications.
Members of the Parkside Christian Church will also be coming to Lynchburg to volunteer in building the home as well as meet the recipient individual or family.
“Habitat would like to give special thanks to Crossroads Mission and Parkside Christian Church for their hard work, and Kenny Bohls for providing storage for the walls,” Krauss said.
If you would like to volunteer for the home build, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also support the mission by making an in-kind donation to 160 W. Main St., P.O. Box 488, Hillsboro, Ohio 45133 or calling 937-403-1257 for a Paypal secure online donation.
The community is also encouraged to support the store this Saturday for its spring cleaning event/sale in conjunction with the U.S. Route 50 National Yard Sale. Proceeds of the event will go toward the home build fund.
