Habitat Osceola Partners With Church For Day of Service April 30, 2011

Posted

On Saturday, April 30, just shortly after Earth Day, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Kissimmee will come together with Habitat for Humanity of Osceola County for an event of deconstruction, recycling, and community collaboration.

With the help of over 300 volunteers from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Habitat for Humanity will be deconstructing a closed Saturn dealership building for materials. The purpose of the event is to salvage any usable commercial material and furniture and resell the items on property at a fraction of the costs.

Community members are encouraged to visit the property located on 2184 E. Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway off of the intersection of Simpson and Rt. 192 in Kissimmee Florida between 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to view and purchase discounted material such as interior and exterior doors, lighting, office furniture, and more. All proceeds raised from the event fund Habitat for Humanity programs and help further the mission to create more affordable housing in Osceola County.

There will also be a clothing drive to benefit individuals being assisted by the Osceola County Homeless Roundtable. There is a desperate need for men’s clothing and daily toiletries. A discount voucher will be given for use on site or at the Habitat for Humanity Restore for community members who make a clothing or toiletry donation.

Please contact Habitat for Humanity of Osceola County at (407) 343-1900 with any further questions.
