|West River Habitat for Humanity held its first meeting in the Wardsboro Town Hall on January 25, 2001. About 30 neighbors attended, and we resolved to apply to become an affiliate of Habitat For Humanity International. We became incorporated on August 3, 2001.
Through raffles, potluck suppers, personal donations and a grant from Vision New England, we have raised $100,000. We purchased property in West Wardsboro for $5,000 at a large discount thanks to the generosity of Adam and Amy Kleppner. We have started construction in partnership with Linda and Frank Carona and their 3 children. In return for 400 hours of “sweat equity”, they will have a new home with an interest free mortgage. Steve Betit has very generously offered to donate land in Whitingham for our second home.
We have enough money to soon start our second home and a third if you will support us and trust that we will use your money wisely. None of our volunteers receive payment for their time or labor, including our project managers, John Thurber and Don Bouret. If you believe in what we are doing, please let us know through your comments, contributions, and by volunteering to help.
Thank you to all those who have helped us so far.
