Young Professionals Organize Volunteer Project


Members of the Starke County Young Professionals group are rolling up their sleeves for a good cause tomorrow.

They are meeting at the Starke County Chamber Depot at 400 North Heaton Street in Knox at 10 a.m. to volunteer for Starke-Pulaski Habitat for Humanity. Tomorrow they will stencil logos on Habitat’s trailer that will hopefully be ready for use on the upcoming home construction project on Prettyman Street in Knox.

Organizers say additional volunteers are always welcome. The informal group was formed several months ago in an effort to get input from more people on a vision for Starke County. The term “young” also has a loose definition, as it is considered to be anyone who is not retired.
