We’re busy here at CCHFH! Though weather and scheduling delays continue to push back our first official volunteer day at the project on Iowa Street in Norman, we’ve been hard at work on our other projects.
The interest in volunteering at our construction project has been astounding, but there are some things left to be accomplished before we can have volunteers on the build.
If you would like to lend a hand to us in the meantime, cash donation is the best way to do it. Since we construct new homes, donated building materials and other donated items cannot be used in them–we have to purchase the building materials we use in most cases. Cash donations offer us the flexibility to buy the items we need, when we need them.
You can also help us is by donating quality, sellable tools, appliances, furnitures, and other household goods that are in a condition to be sold. We use the money we make from selling donated items to buy building materials for home construction., which means that shopping at the ReStore is yet another way to help
We’re happy to announce that we’ve selected a homeowner for a home in Moore. The home in Moore was originally owned by another Habitat homeowner until their family outgrew it. Now we have found a more suitable home for the previous owner, and the new family will be moving in as soon as preparations are finished.
The home construction in Noble on Willow Street has been progressing rapidly. The framing, roofing, and rough-in plumbing are complete, here are a few photos of the progress!
I’d like to give an official Build Blog Welcome to Stephen Zaborowski, our new Vice President of Development and Community Engagement. Most recently you may have seen him at the Noble Chamber of Commerce meeting at Kendall’s! Although he is new to us at CCHFH, he is already a wellspring of information about our projects, and how you might be able to help us with them. He will be thinking new ways for Habitat to help the community, as well.
Our ReStore continues to be blessed by the community with their donations of quality furniture, appliances, and building materials. To better serve our generous community, we are considering the possibility of another ReStore in Cleveland County. If you know of an area in Cleveland County that would benefit from a Habitat ReStore we would love to hear about it.
Stay tuned for news to come!
