Despite a slow start, construction continues on the Habitat for Humanity Build-A-Home project in Decatur.
Volunteers have filled seven days, but several makeup days have been scheduled in January and February including:
- Friday, Jan. 10,
- Saturday, Feb. 1,
- Friday, Feb, 7,
- Saturday, Feb. 8
“These are open to the public and offer a great opportunity for team building and client relationship building,” said Beth Lopez, Trinity Habitat for Humanity sponsor relations manager. “It is a unique chance to build on a Habitat project and to assist a member of your community as they work to fulfill a dream.”
The home, located at 202 W. Oak St., is for Charlie Schmerber, a pharmacy technician at Wal-Mart and the single mother of Kendra.

“Review the dates at your convenience; grab a hammer and a friend; and join us,” Lopez said. “Make it a New Year’s resolution to help a neighbor or have fun exercising. It truly is a rewarding experience.”
