JERICHO, N.Y. and NEW LEXINGTON, Ohio, July 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tunnel Hill Partners, a community minded business with a mission to serve and be an active participant in bettering society, is partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Southeast Ohio to build a simple, decent, an affordable home for a family in need.
Tunnel Hill Partners is thrilled to offer a $3,000 donation, which will be used for the home build taking place this summer in Crooksville, Ohio.
This particular build will include a "blitz weekend" in which approximately 6 weeks worth of work will be accomplished in only two days. During this time, the home will be framed, the roof installed, windows and doors installed, and the home will be sided by over 200 volunteers. After the blitz, the home will be completed over the following 8-10 weeks.
"Habitat for Humanity of Southeast Ohio is blessed to have a new partner in Perry County," says Kenneth Oehlers, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Southeast Ohio. "Tunnel Hill Partners shares our belief that everyone deserves to have a decent, affordable home in which to live and is helping us achieve the mission by building a home for a family in need."
Habitat for Humanity of Southeast Ohio, an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, works in partnership with families to provide them with safe, affordable homes. Each home build costs about $60,000. Once built, families purchase the homes and pay a zero interest mortgage back to Habitat for Humanity of Southeast Ohio. Habitat for Humanity then uses these mortgage payments to build more homes to help others in need.
