Habitat For Humanity To Build House In Alton; Groundbreaking Monday

Alton, Iowa — Another Habitat for Humanity home will soon be built in Sioux County.

According to Siouxland Habitat for Humanity, they will be breaking ground on their next Habitat Home in Alton next week. Officials with Habitat say the community is invited to join them for what they call the “momentous occasion” at 10:00 a.m on Monday, May 2nd as they celebrate the new home at 712 Park Street in Alton and “dedicate the work and the glory to God for making all we do possible!”

While a family has not yet been chosen for this home, Siouxland Habitat for Humanity accepted applications in the month of March and is currently in the process of selecting a family.

Siouxland Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Anne Holmes says they have been “extremely blessed by the support and partnership we have received from Sioux County in the past and we are so excited to be building again in Alton this year. We had a family move into their house in Hull in February and will soon have a family moving into their house in Hawarden, so we are excited to get started on this next project!”

Kurt Franje, Habitat’s Sioux County Director says, “This truly is a community build, so we invite everyone to join us in praising God for making this possible and asking for His blessing on what is ahead for this home. We are grateful to the Alton community for welcoming us and we want you to be involved as much as possible.”

Everyone is welcome to attend the groundbreaking event.

Construction will begin on the home shortly following the ceremony. If you want to be a part of this community project, Habitat officials say they have lots of ways to get involved. Volunteers of any skill level are welcome. They tell us that donations of construction materials or financial contributions are sincerely appreciated. If you would like to volunteer or donate, or have questions about the project, you can contact Kurt Franje, 641-780-9054 or kfranje@siouxlandhabitat.org.
