DINGMAN - On May 31, seven members of the Pike County Habitat for Humanity crew constructed a new ramp for the Overman family. Mr. and Mrs. Overman applied for a ramp through the revolving ramp fund which was initiated by a partnership between Pike United Way, Habitat for Humanity, the Lords Valley Rotary Club and a local anonymous donor as a way to get ramps to people who need them in Pike County. This is the fifth ramp that Habitat has built in Pike County. Habitat for Humanity has been very busy this spring. In addition to building this 5th ramp, they are currently building their tenth home in Pike County and getting ready to break ground for number eleven. If you would like to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, call 570-828-1623.
