On Sept. 11, 2013 the St. Thomas sponsored Habitat Home formally began its volunteer construction with nearly 250 parishioners signed up for the project.
On a recent weekend in September, fifty volunteers helped construct and erect walls and install roof trusses.
In late October, twenty volunteers are expected to help with the vinyl siding of the home.
The above photo is just one example of the tremendous teamwork and camaraderie needed to make this effort work. The project is on-schedule and with the help of the Good Lord and many volunteers, we hope to have the home completed by Christmas.
To date, generous parishioners and various St. Thomas groups have donated $25,000 towards our $30,000 goal.
Brochures with information are available in the church lobby for anyone desiring to help out. On the same table is a doll house being assembled by the Youth Council (lead by Yani Almanza) tracking the onsite construction (actual house is single story).
