- The 18th house built by Habitat for Humanity of Wayne County was dedicated on Sunday, Oct. 6.
The Habitat house on Riverside Drive in Honesdale is the new home for Gina Feola and her three sons Paul, Michael and Yanni.
Wayne County Habitat's president, Lena Warren, welcomed the large turnout of volunteers, Habitat board members and the friends and family of the new Habitat Partner Family.
The Habitat family was presented a mail box, a Bible, a flag, a bird house and homeowner's equipment and appliance manuals. Also, a beautiful quilt from the Lutheran Women of St. John's Evangelical Church, Honesdale, was given to the family.
Habitat is grateful to Whirpool Corp. for donating a refrigerator and stove for every Habitat house built in America.
Through the efforts of the Habitat Board and the dedicated "can do" volunteers, Habitat for Humanity of Wayne County strives to build one house each year.
The Habitat Geezer Volunteer Crew is getting a little smaller so this year Habitat partnered with Johnson College to have the basic house built by their students.
It was a triple-win for Habitat, Johnson College and the new Habitat family. The resources to purchase the materials and services needed to build a Habitat house come from the repayment of no-interest mortgages by Habitat Partner families, donations given by individuals and businesses, and the community support of Habitat's fund raising events.
Habitat for Humanity of Wayne County needs your continued support so they can build another house in 2014.
