Help Habitat for Humanity get a family home for Christmas

Western Lake Superior Habitat for Humanity is looking for volunteers on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (or any sizable chunk of time in there) to help remodel a home for the Christianson family.  Construction experience is useful, but a willingness to help is the only requirement.

Families are chosen based on the level of need for decent housing, their ability to repay a zero-interest mortgage for the cost of construction (average $90k) and their willingness to help build their home, working alongside volunteers from across the Twin Ports community.

The Christiansons and their three boys and baby girl have been through a lot this year and our goal is to complete construction on the home in time for the them to move in to their newly remodeled home by Christmas.  We’ll need lots of help from the community to accomplish this goal please e-mail Susan Marks at volunteer @ twinportshabitat.org, call 218-722-3875 or sign up to volunteer online.
