Speaker: Habitat for Humanity
Habitat addresses need first, prioritizes those families, builds the homes and sells to the families at cost. Families are required to pay the home loan back within 30 years. Families must invest 250 hours of sweat equity into each home build. Executive Director Diane McGeen said she is seeking partnerships with churches, civic groups and businesses, and hopes to bring awareness that “we do have a housing need in Waukesha County.”
Women Build Day takes place Thursday, May 7 or Saturday, May 9. Frequent, shop and donate to the ReStore on Moreland Blvd, which seeks appliances, construction supplies, furniture and lighting. Contact McGeen for more ways you can help, or better yet, reach out to Rotarian Greg Buxa who will act as the point person for forming a build team, donating items or contributing to the cause.

Interact Students "interact"

OHS advisor Jason Curtis introduced Rotary Interact students, who are launching a Soles for Jesus shoe drive, delivered hand-painted pumpkins to Shorehaven for Halloween and sent cards to Shorehaven residents. McGeen described her worthy work with Habitat for Humanity, building homes, communities and hope since 1989. Nationally, 800,000 homes have been built, serving 12,000 families.
