Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario Celebrating London Family’s Virtual KEY CEREMONY For Renovation Project of Donated Home 

May 25, 2021, LONDON ON – Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario is excited to celebrate the completion of the renovation of a single-family home on Culver Drive in London for Jamie & Jennifer’s family, and will host a Virtual Key Ceremony streaming live on Habitat Heartland Ontario’s Facebook page on May 26th at 11:00am. All are welcome to watch and engage to show support for Habitat Heartland's newest homeowners Jamie & Jennifer! 

The Culver Drive renovation project was a new opportunity for Habitat Heartland to bring affordable housing to the community, as it was a refurbishment of an existing semi-detached 2-story home. This project was made possible by the generous donation of the Culver Drive home by the Estate of John Joseph Arnold. This life-changing donation will bring strength, stability and independence to Jamie and Jennifer’s family. 

The Culver Drive Virtual Key Ceremony will include messages from: Habitat homeowners Jennifer and Jamie, as well as local dignitaries, and Habitat for Humanity’s Julia Deans (President and CEO Habitat for Humanity Canada), Brian Elliot (CEO Habitat Heartland Ontario), Alan MacKinnon (Board Chair Habitat Heartland Ontario), and Brad Siemens (Habitat Heartland Build Crew Volunteer). 

“We are all very excited to be celebrating the completion of this renovation on Culver Drive for Jamie & Jennifer’s family in London,” says Brian Elliot, CEO Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario. “This Virtual Key Ceremony is the safest way to celebrate with everyone in the community who have shown incredible support for this project from the beginning. Habitat Heartland Ontario has worked alongside many partners, volunteers, and donors from the community who have helped make a lasting, positive impact on the lives of the family. We had an incredible amount of volunteer support on this project that made it all possible. Make sure to join in on the celebration on Facebook live on May 26th!”  

The Culver Drive Virtual Key Ceremony will be streaming live on the Habitat Heartland Ontario Facebook page on May 26th at 11:00am.
