Now they have passed the hammer back to the community.  Are you ready to pick-up that hammer?   Sending out a special Thanks to Done Right Roofing from Cornwall […]

Is it hot enough for everyone? Our Build Supervisor and our volunteers have braved this incredible heat wave, thank you so much Kevin and team for pushing through such extreme heat.

This week we also welcome our summer student Michael Brie to our build. Michael is currently taking the Civil Engineering Program at La Cite Collegiale in Ottawa. We are certainly very lucky to have him as part of our team this summer.

The I.B.E.W. Local 115 generously donated $5,000 in electrical goods for our Williamsburg home build. We have hired M.A. Electrical Pole to do the work for this home. Thank you so much I.B.E.W. Local 115!

Atel Air is on site installing the HVAC for the families’ home. They have generously donated the entire labour and system for this home. You are a true community leader Atel Air!

Please remember, you are all welcome to come and help us build! Volunteers are always needed and appreciated. You can reach out to Joanne at any time - 613-938-0413 ext.206 or joanne@habitatcornwall.org.

Another superb sponsor are our friends at Longevity Acrylics. With each build, they are always eager to help. They have once again donated a bathtub and shower combo, as well as a shower unit for the lower level. We are so lucky to have supporters like you! Way to go Longevity Acrylics!

Last Saturday we hosted our “Some Assembly Required” BBQ to open our build to the public to volunteer and add their sweat and smiles to the Pinard family’s future home. What a great day with fantastic volunteers and beautiful weather.

If you would like to be part of our build by volunteering or making a donation to our build program, please email or call me. We are in need if paint, drywall and drywall installers and plastering, lumber, backfill, moulding, lighting for the home, interior doors. Any financial help, allows us to keep building in SD&G. We can do this together!

A super big Congratulations goes out to a special volunteer that has built so many of our Habitat Homes. Congratulations Mary-Lee Smith… or should I say Mary-Lee Lepage on your union with the love of your life. Habitat staff and volunteers wish you good weather, good memories, an everlasting love. We hope your day is as special to you as you are to us!

Have a fantastic, super-hot long weekend everyone! NOTE – OUR BUILD WILL BE CLOSED ON MONDAY, JULY 2nd DUE TO THE STAT HOLIDAY.
