Habitat for Humanity of Island County is at it again.

The local branch of the nonprofit housing organization will build another home for a low-income family on Whidbey. This time around, the Oak Harbor-based organization is taking their team to the South End to help a family build a home in Freeland.

To celebrate construction of a new home, the organization is inviting the community to a ground-breaking ceremony at 3:15 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 21 at 5633 Eveningside Lane.

The Freeland house will be the 48th home Habitat for Humanity of Island County has built since the organization’s conception in 1998. The home will be built in partnership with Gail Klebold, who has lived on Whidbey Island since 1994, and her family.

The Klebolds say they are thankful for the organization for giving them the opportunity to own their own home.

Those interested in volunteer opportunities to help with building or provide lunches can contact Outreach Coordinator Megan Allaire at 360-679-9444. For information on how to donate, visit www.islandcountyhabitat.org.
