Habitat For Humanity celebrates groundbreaking of 52nd home in Houston County
WARNER ROBINS, Ga. -- Habitat for Humanity celebrated finishing their 52nd Houston County home Saturday with a groundbreaking ceremony off of Greenway Drive.
Warner Robins Mayor Randy Toms was there to present the key to Pete Braddy, who will move in Wednesday with his wife Tamara and their four children.
The House 52 Project began in February with the wall raising celebration. Since then, volunteers, sponsors, and donors have worked together to finish the project.
"I was here when they put up the first wall," Said Mayor Randy Toms. "So to see the first wall go up and all the volunteers that were out here that day, and to watch the progress over the weeks and months come along -- and now to see the finished product that this family can move into and make it their home. That's exciting! There's just no other way to describe it except for...it's community."
Directors at Habitat for Humanity say House 53 will be right next door to House 52. Construction for that project will begin in September.
