DINGMAN - Saturday, March 18, was the first day of a new project for volunteers of the Pike County Chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Work began with the clearing of trees for their tenth house located in Sunrise Lakes. Volunteers will be working along with the newest homeowners, a family of six, throughout the summer and hope to be finished by early fall. The folks at Habitat are dedicated to eliminating substandard housing and homelessness worldwide and to make adequate, affordable shelter a matter of conscience and action. Habitat believes that everyone deserves the chance to have their own home. Habitat builds simple, decent houses by creating a working partnership with eligible families, community organizations, business sponsors and volunteers. If you would like to join them on this project call the office at 570-828-1623 and get on the phone/email list.
