Do you Like to Volunteer? Here is an Opportunity for You!

Habitat-for-HumanityHabitat for Humanity will begin their next new build this Saturday, July 12. The build will take place at US 6 and Capitol Rd in South Haven, just west of the Salvation Army. The start time will be at 8:00 am with a breakfast. Because this is the start to a new build, Habitat would like to make it special and have a short ceremony and groundbreaking, followed by the wall raising itself. At lunch time they will be having a cook out and the workday will end around 3:30 pm. Of course volunteers can stay as long as they are able to.
