Calling all volunteers …

Habitat for Humanity of Kent County has kicked off a build in North Kent County on Tuesday, March 31, and volunteers are needed. Absolutely no experience is required. Habitat has plenty of jobs at all skill levels, including framing, siding, painting, land scaping, work site assistance and clean up, meal prep, and more. To work on site, you must be 16 years or older. Construction will continue through June 20.

Sign up as a group, or come out and meet new friends.  Habitat guarantees you will find this to be a most rewarding experience. Shifts are two, four or eight hours long – construction runs during the week and from 8 to 4 p.m. on Saturdays.  Weekday volunteers are in high demand.

For more information and a construction schedule, contact: Colleen Mahon-VanDoren at 774.2431, ext. 224, or check out www.habitatkent.org. In 2008, HFHKC celebrated its 25th anniversary by building its 250th home.   Habitat Kent builds all LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) homes, making them one of our nation’s leaders in the construction of affordable environmentally sound homes. In 2006, Habitat Kent built the nation’s first affordable LEED home, as recognized by the United States Green Building Council.  Habitat homes are not “given away;”  homebuyers invest 300 to 500 hours of “sweat equity” with Habitat prior to assuming responsibility for 25-year-mortgage.  To qualify, homebuyers must earn between 25-60 percent of the area median income.
