It is back! After two years of not being able to participate in the building of Habitat houses, we are back in business this year. Our Habitat home buyer will be Anita Allen. Her address will be 415 West Lake Avenue NW. Anita loves working as a housekeeper in the Alzheimer unit where she gets great joy from talking with and helping the individuals in her care. She looks forward to coming home to a quiet place, “…a place that is wonderfully made.”
The kickoff will be June 18 followed by build days on June 25, July 9, July 16, July 30, August 6 and the final build day, August 13. We will join with our long time partner church, Dodd-Sterling United Methodist Church, and a number of other churches to help Anita build her house. This year the number of volunteers will be limited to 25 for each build day from all of the faith build partners, and each church will be allowed a limited number of people. Saint Luke’s will be able to provide four volunteers each time. As in the past, we will use the Atlanta Habitat volunteer hub to sign up. More details on signup will be provided soon.
If you have questions or would like more information, feel free to reach out to any one of the members of the Saint Luke’s Leadership Team – Bill Womack, Daryl Moore, Diane Markel, Ellen Womack, Ted Guerrant, Tom McIntosh, and Val DeFriece.
