The Glasgow-Barren Co. Chapter of Habitat for Humanity
broke ground for house number 8 on Thursday, May 1. Shown in the
picture at the groundbreaking are (L to R) Tony Batey and Mary Batey (mother and
owner of the new home with her son), Golda Walbert, Dr. Mody, Billy Elmore,
Davie Greer, Pam Browning and Mayor Darrell Pickett.
These homes are not given to families, but are purchased with monthly
interest-free payments. Families have to qualify for this assistance. They must have a job, be able to pay the amount agreed upon and be willing to work with Habitat to learn budgeting and home care
skills. All partner families are required to contribute by laboring directly on the construction of their home or working
at different informational or fund-raising events. Habitat homes are
constructed solely by volunteers and the partner families. Habitat's continued success is dependent upon contributions of time, materials and money from members of the community.
Volunteers are needed: Glasgow's Habitat For Humanity is looking for people willing to devote a few hours, mostly on Saturday mornings, to help build Habitat's 8th local house. All workers are welcome (skilled or unskilled). Contact Beth by email or 651-2587 if you're willing to help.
