Building UAB’s Habitat House
UAB’s Habitat House Dedication is scheduled for Monday, November 10 at 11:30. Everyone is invited to the brief ceremony. It will be an opportunity for all of the volunteers who helped to build the house to see the finished product. Dr. Linda Lucas, UAB Provost, and Dr. Harold Jones, Dean of the School of Health Professions, will make special presentations to the family. Homeowner La'Tasha Willis and her daughters will receive the keys to their new home and express their appreciation to the volunteers and donors who made their dream of homeownership affordable. Please join us.
UAB’s Habitat House is nearing completion. We need a few more volunteers to finish our house. While the original project was scheduled to be a 4 week build once our house was assigned, we realized it would be more of a 5-6 week build because of the crawl space and additional roof work Habitat wanted UAB volunteers to complete. We are currently scheduled to complete our build on November 8. We need volunteers the following dates and times:
Thursday 30-Oct 12:00 PM -4:00 PM 10 volunteers needed
Friday 31-Oct 7:30 AM - 11:30 AM 15 volunteers needed
Friday 31-Oct 12:00 PM -4:00 PM 23 volunteers needed
Thursday 6-Nov 7:30 AM - 11:30 AM 20 volunteers needed
Thursday 6-Nov 12:00 PM -4:00 PM 4 volunteers needed
