Starke/Pulaski Habitat for Humanity is preparing to build their next home for a family in need but they have not yet chosen an applicant for whom the house will be built. Steve Morrison of Habitat told WKVI that the organization is still taking applications from interested parties who feel they may be qualified, and he said Habitat will soon make their selection as to whom they feel would most benefit from the home, with construction to, hopefully, begin in the summer.
Morrison said the agency is also accepting applications for people interested in becoming involved with Habitat as they prepare for their next endeavor. He explained Habitat is staying busy, and they’re in the process of selling items donated to them by local Alco stores.
“We have been in the process of selling in a garage sale – and we’re going to have booths at the Power of the Past here in July – the products that the Alco stores in Knox and Winamac donated to us when they changed their supplier,” said Morrison.
On top of that, the agency has been performing various work for residents – “touch-of-kindness” work, as Morrison described it.
“We’ve put some siding on some houses, we’ve repaired some windows and just some little odd jobs and so forth for those who have requested it and provide the products and materials and we do the labor free,” said Morrison.
To submit an application for a home constructed by Starke/Pulaski Habitat for Humanity, call Hoppe Hardware at (574) 896-2811 or Steve Morrison at First National Bank in Monterey at (574) 542-2121.
