Central Reformed Church helps Habitat for Humanity



Habitat for Humanity is currently in the process of naming a partner family for the new home, McReynolds said.

Habitat for Humanity recently did a decorated stud fund-raising event where businesses could decorate a wall stud for $100. More than 70 studs were decorated and they will be placed in the new home, she said.

In the future, there will be a stud-finding contest in the new home for the donors, she said.

Johnny Anderson, of TJA Construction, was the contractor who played foreman at the church Saturday. Anderson is a member of the congregation. 

Anderson said he had three of his workmen oversee the work Saturday. They would cut the wood and do the wall layout, and then oversee the volunteers.

"It's beautiful," he said of the volunteers' efforts. "We'll be done with this shortly."

Anderson said the volunteers will build both interior and exterior walls.

The Rev. Don De Glopper was pleased with his congregation's efforts.

"It's exciting to see people enjoying helping other people," he said.

The volunteers ranged in age from 9 to 80, he added.
