Habitat for Humanity expanding and building
LEWISBURG – It’s no longer the Union-Snyder Habitat for Humanity. They now represent Northumberland County also and are known as SUN Habitat for Humanity. The group is looking forward to dedicating a new home in Snyder County too. Greg Krohn is president of the group and talked about their mission.
He said, “The mission is to bring God’s people together to build homes, communities and hope in Snyder, Union and Northumberland Counties. Families selected must live in sub-standard housing, spend at least 250 hours helping to build their home, complete a home-ownership course and be able to pay a zero-interest mortgage.”
The latest home will be dedicated to the Dalton family. Krohn said, “Union-Snyder Habitat for Humanity built a home in partnership with the Harriett Dalton family in Penns Creek. The dedication of the home will be held on Saturday October 12th at 11 a.m. The home is at 207 Walnut Ridge Estates. The public is invited to attend the dedication and to celebrate with us the completion of the Dalton home.”
Krohn says the Dalton family worked hard to make their dream of owning a home a reality. He explained, “Well, a number of volunteers helped to build the home, including the Dalton family. She and her family worked over 500 hours on their home, which is the most of any family on record.”
