Workers are in the home stretch on a Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County build project in Ottawa.
But that doesn’t mean the group doesn’t still need volunteers for its final work day, starting at 9 a.m. Saturday at 740 S. Elm St., organizers said.
“The main focus of the day will be landscaping and prepping the yard for grass seed,” Cindy Dengel, Franklin County’s Habitat volunteer relations chair, said. “We will also be knocking out the punch list items for the inside of the house (touch-up painting, door hardware, blinds, clean up, etc.).”
Lunch will be provided, Dengel said, so volunteers are encouraged to sign up to ensure an accurate head count for the meal.
The Habitat project is expected to culminate with a new home for the current partner family, David and Whitney Bethea.
A fundraiser for the project — a Church Choir Challenge — also is planned 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday at Ottawa Municipal Auditorium, 301 S. Hickory St. Eight to 10 volunteers are needed to help with setup, greeting, ushering and counting donations.
“If you haven’t attended or volunteered for this event, it is very inspiring and an evening of great music,” Dengel said.
