Learning more about Habitat for Humanity
We thank Kara Warner for her very informative presentation at today’s Rotary meeting. Kara spoke about the Battle Creek Area Habitat for Humanity. This local affiliate also includes the covenant communities of Albion and Marshall. Habitat recently moved its office to 286 Capital Avenue NE. Soon, the ReStore will relocate to 595 North Avenue.
Locally, Habitat builds two to three homes, completes four to six critical repairs to homes and builds up to two dozen ramps for homes each year. This is accomplished through a team of 600 volunteers, representing 20,000 volunteer hours per year! Many volunteers are local, but some have come from Wisconsin, Illinois, Maine and Connecticut.
Habitat always invites our support through volunteerism, board and committee support, funding and grants.
