SPRING 2017 BUILD STARTS SATURDAY
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville will begin its 2017 build season in Nashville Saturday, March 4 at 7:30 a.m. Three homes will start in the Hallmark subdivision of Antioch and one home in Cheatham County. Habitat will build or reconstruct 37 new homes in four counties this year, according to Danny Herron, president and CEO of Habitat of Greater Nashville. Woodmont Christian Church, Ingram Entertainment, Inc. will help Asad Mohamed and Asma Abood. Kirkland’s is sponsoring Haymanot Zewdu. Kirkland’s has been a long-time supporter of Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore. This is their first home sponsorship. Publix Super Markets Charities (PSMC) is sponsoring Ramadhan Mohammed and Jiyan Salman. PSMC announced in December 2016 that it would donate $5.5 million to Habitat affiliates across the Southeast, which equates to 60 new Habitat for Humanity home builds.
In 1985, Nashville leaders decided to be a part of the extraordinary ministry of the Habitat for Humanity movement. With only a handful of volunteers, it often took up to a year to complete one house, but the positive effects were clear and the volunteer passion was unwavering. To date, Nashville Habitat has built or recycled more than 1,090 homes, more than 812 locally, serving more than 2,789 family members including 1,768 children, and celebrated its 500th build in 2012.
Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
