BOND COUNTY HABITAT FOR HUMANITY HOLIDAY MAILER
Among the Christmas cards in your mailbox, you may see something from Bond County Habitat for Humanity. The organization completed its annual Holiday Mailing last week. President Larry Sayler said Habitat for Humanity in Bond County is doing great things. In the past ten years, they have built six homes; four in Greenville and two in Pocahontas. Six families now have safe, affordable, housing, who did not have previously. Larry said they hope to begin working on their next home this fall. Habitat for Humanity is not a hand out, but a hand up. The families must work on the home as it is being built and they must pay a mortgage rate on the completed home. Letters were recently sent to individuals who have donated to Habitat in the past. If you did not receive a letter, you may still participate or donate by calling Larry at 664-1995.
