Habitat for Humanity to assist fire victims
Habitat for Humanity has announced a partnership with Margaretville Central School teacher Shana Eaglefeathers to build a home for her and her five children. The family lost all of its possessions when its Bovina mobile home was destroyed in a fire on Sept. 24. The children range in age from 14 to four.
The group is looking forward to involving members of the Eaglefeathers’ community in the build, and is seeking volunteers who wish to serve on the board and committees.
There will be a meeting tonight, Nov. 4, at 5 p.m. at The United Ministry of Delhi at 46 Church Street. Anyone interested in getting more information is encouraged to contact Jacqlene Rose by phone at 607 563-2433 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Pastor Martha Vink at The United Ministry at 607 746-2191.
The mission of Habitat for Humanity is to provide simple, decent shelter for qualified families, who in turn agree to provide 300 hours of sweat equity and to work side by side with volunteers to construct a home. Upon completion, the family will have a mortgage that is interest-free and payable to Habitat on a monthly basis over a 25-year period.
Currently, Habitat for Humanity of Delaware County has seven homes.
