Greater Lynchburg Habitat for Humanity (GLHFH), which is celebrating its 25th anniversary, is partnering with the Lynchburg Rotary Club (celebrating 100 years) and Genworth (celebrating 10 years). So our current build is appropriately named "The Anniversary Build."
Because of the generosity of the Lynchburg Rotary Club and Genworth, the Kimberly Jiggetts family will enjoy their new home currently being constructed at 1712 Monroe Street. this beautiful two-story three-bedroom home will be a lovely addition to this historic neighborhood. The Jiggetts are expected to close on their new home in mid-November.
THE JOSEPHINE HOUSE
Because of the generosity of Josephine Wood, the construction of a lovely two-story three bedroom home is well on its way at 1706 Grace Street. This historic neighborhood, conveniently located near Highway 29, is the perfect place for Nina Ford to raise her kids. They should be able to close on their new home in February 2015.
Volunteers are always needed, even for sponsored builds. If you'd like to get involved, please call Susan at 434.528.3774.
