Volunteering at Habitat for Humanity

Carl Christianson

Last Saturday, G. Christianson Construction volunteered at Habitat for Humanity’s Philomath home building project. The 12th street duplex is making great progress, the drywall texturing was just completed and the siding is in progress. We helped install HardiePlank lap siding on the east side of the home. The weather was beautiful and we had a good time with the other volunteers.

Benton Habitat for Humanity is a program that supports local low income people by building and then selling low-cost homes at zero percent interest rates. The low income home buyers are required to provide sweat equity. We support their mission by volunteering and donating building materials to the Habitat Re-store.

“Benton Habitat for Humanity is a countywide, ecumenical ministry that seeks to eliminate sub-standard housing and to make decent shelter a matter of action and conscience. By having people from all income levels work together in equal partnership, Habitat builds new relationships and a sense of community, as well as new housing.”
