Habitat for Humanity needs volunteers to build new home in Tryon

Published 3:15 pm Wednesday, December 20, 2017

Thermal Belt Habitat for Humanity is asking for volunteers to construct the walls of a new Habitat home in Tryon during a one-day blitz build on Jan. 12, 2018.  The build will begin at 8:30 a.m. and wrap up at approximately 3 p.m. No experience is necessary and lunch will be provided.

There will be a wall signing at 11:30 a.m. open for anyone in the community to come out and sign the walls of the home with messages of hope and inspiration for the future Habitat family.

Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Thermal Belt Habitat for Humanity grew from a grassroots effort that began by the Rotary Club of Tryon and a group from the Congregational Church UCC in 1983 to providing 67 local families a place to call home.
