Great thanks to all who donated physically, financially, nutritionally, prayerfully, and emotionally to the Women Build this May 2017!
Our second year in a row we had 19 First Presbyterian Church Elkhart Women involved. Almost $2000 was donated by our builders and other generous members of our congregation. In addition, our local church's Foundaton providing $1000, which made our church one of the official sponsors for the local Women Build. Look for the violet Habitat for Humanity of Elkhart County Women Build T shirts and banners with our church logo on them.
The weather was perfect for building, Saturday, May 13. Sunny and not too warm. Three Future Habitat home owners were there to build with us. One provided our lunch as well.
Be sure to drive past the new home, nearing completion at 2422 Morehouse, on the second block, north of Hively Ave, Elkhart.
Dedication will be later this summer. You are welcome to attend to admire the new home for Charissa and her son Jayveon Johnson.
If you meant to donate and didn't get a chance, Habitat is always taking donations for future builds. Homes are only constructed after the funds are raised. Hopefully we will reach our Elkhart County Habitat goal of building our 200th home by the end of 2017!
