See you there.
2013 has arrived, full of winter snow and cold conditions. Elko County Habitat for Humanity hopes you and yours had a wonderful holiday season.
There are a lot of things on the agenda for the year, and we are excited to continue our mission to help build homes with deserving families.
The Elko Home Depot has begun making material donations to the Elko County Habitat for Humanity through Good360. These donations are scheduled to continue for monthly for the next year.
We were excited and pleased to receive our first shipment of windows, faucets, and fittings and would like to give a big THANK YOU to the Elko Home Depot and their staff for making this possible.
In December 1985, the United Nations General Assembly declared the first Monday in October to be World Habitat Day.
- To call attention to the need for better shelter around the world.
- To let it be known that affordable, adequate housing should be a priority everywhere.
- To change the systems, policies and attitudes that lead to poverty housing, and involve partners in solutions.
World Habitat Day begins on Monday, Oct. 1, 2012
This year’s theme, Many Homes, One Community, will call attention to the pivotal role of housing in a neighborhood’s progression.
Habitat for Humanity supporters around the globe will participate in special activities that highlight the need for safe, decent and affordable shelter.
The Sandoval build is continuing along.
Currently we are working on putting the utilities put in. The City of Elko recently did some work on B street adjacent to the property, so we are working with the city to get permission to cut the street to put in sewer access. We are currently working on locating an individual or organization to help donate a backhoe to put in the sewer trench and also do some grading on the property so we can install security fencing.
Additionally, we are hoping to get power put in on the property so that we can start other build related work without the use of noisy generators that would disrupt neighboring homes. We are expecting to have power put in within the next 4 weeks.
We continue to need the support of our community in the form of materials, money, and volunteer time. If you’re interested and able to assist us, please let us know.
The Elko County of Habitat for Humanity website is officially up and running. We’ll be updating the site a lot in the next few days (weeks) as we get settled in. Keep on stopping by for all the latest news. And thank you for your support!
