Habitat for Humanity
On May 15, 2019, a ground breaking ceremony was held on World Family Day for the next house that our coalition, Flower City Habitat for Humanity, is building.
This ground breaking ceremony was featured on local media and a video can be found at https://13wham.com/news/local/refugee-family-breaks-ground-on-new-habitat-for-humanity-home.
This will be the largest home built locally by habitat with five bedrooms for a family of twelve from Somalia that have come to Rochester.
The house at 96 Holworthy St. is almost finished. The dedication ceremony is scheduled for Saturday, March 28th at 10:00AM.
Many St. Marianne Cope parishioners helped work on the house on a monthly basis. Pictured above is Deacon Bob Lyons, Robert Caulkins, James Walker, Dana Neumire and George Chapman. Others who have helped are: Carol & Bob Bucci, Andy Zeiner, John Steiner, David & Kyle Daub, Erik Anderson, Andy Fellenz and Rose Rossi-Williams.
The Harvest Home Habitat for Humanity Coalition will be building another house this July. This house is located at 395 Campbell St. and is being built for a mother of 2 recently relocated to the Rochester area from Puerto Rico. If you would like to be added to Deacon Bob's workday email list, please email him at [email protected] or [email protected].
May 17, 2020 is the next Uno's Dough-Raiser.
