Walls raised in Havre de Grace, volunteers needed
On a frigid December morning, sponsors, volunteers, city and state representatives gathered alongside homebuyer Kathryn (at left) to raise the first of her new home's walls. The celebration was especially notable in that it signified the start of the seven Habitat homes planned for a lot in Havre de Grace bordered by Revolution Street, Stokes Street and Freedom Lane. (For more details, read our press release.)

Volunteers are needed Wednesdays through Saturdays until the build is complete. To volunteer, register through our website.

College students volunteer during school break
Our first Collegiate Challenge group of the New Year has arrived! Students from Lackawanna College in Scranton, PA, are here for a week volunteering at our build site as well as at our Aberdeen ReStore. (Our thanks to Webster Congregational Christian Church in Havre de Grace for housing them!)
