SL Rotary gives grant to Habitat for Humanity

• Sep 4, 2018 at 7:00 AM

The Rotary Club of Spring Lake recently supported the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity as both a volunteer work project and by donating $15,000.

The funds will be used in the building of Tri-Cities Area Habitat for Humanity’s house No. 61, currently under construction in Ferrysburg.

Rotarians will be donating their time in all aspects of the building process. Community members are also urged to volunteer on this build. Contact Habitat for Humanity at 616-846-1505 if you’re interested in helping.

The Spring Lake Rotary Club meets Fridays for a lunch meeting at 12:15 p.m. at the Spring Lake Country Club. If interested in attending a meeting, contact Cara Galbavi at caragalbavilaw.com.

The local Habitat for Humanity chapter was founded in 1989 by a group of community members concerned about the lack of affordable housing, an issue much in the news today. Since that time, 61 decent, affordable houses have been built and more than 150 children are now living in their own “home.” This home ownership was achieved by hard work on the part of their parents, along with volunteers from our community.

Tri-Cities Area Habitat for Humanity is always in need of both volunteers and donations. For more information, visit tricitieshabitat.org
