Clinton County Habitat for Humanity recently celebrated its volunteers, partner families and donors at a dinner.
Those honored for the commitment to the organization included Restore Manager Theresa Gregory, who single-handedly orchestrated a move to the new Restore location at 1032 West Main Street in Wilmington.
Elizabeth Biggane was honored as Volunteer of the Year. She leads the family selection committee and ensures that partner families receive the support and assistance needed to make a good transition as home owners. Those who were instrumental in the building of homes and serving Habitat in a wide range of assistance were: Tom McChain, Unsung Hero Award recipient; Tom Matrka, Outstanding Service Award recipient; and Dick Neff, Energizer Bunny Award recipient.
The organization has begun working on the home of Donovan Butler and Stephanie Oberlin in Wilmington. Their home will be the 35th built by Clinton County Habitat for Humanity.
In 2016, the organization’s goal is to build a second home in Wilmington. There will be a need for more volunteers in the building. Churches, organizations and companies are invited to participate. For more information, call the office at 937-655-9484.
