Habitat for Humanity celebrates new home

Habitat for Humanity of Island County is inviting the public to attend a groundbreaking ceremony for a new home located at 3160 Summit Boulevard, Oak Harbor at noon on Friday, March 1.

The house will become the “forever home” for the Dunlap Family, according to a press release.

“With our help, homeowners achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to shape a better tomorrow for themselves and their families,” the press release states. “Through Habitat’s home building and other programs, we are improving our community and empowering people to help themselves.”

To attend or for more information on how to donate, please visit www.islandcountyhabitat.org or contact Irene Kintz, volunteer coordinator, at 360-679-9444, or by email at volunteer@islandcountyhabitat.com.

Habitat for Humanity of Island County has been building low-cost, quality affordable housing in partnership with low-income since 1998.
