MASON CITY, IA – Two different families in north Iowa are getting two brand new homes all thanks to the Mason City Habitat for Humanity.
The lots the houses will be built on sit side by side on N. Pennsylvania Ave. and they were donated to the by Tim Latham and through this generous donation, they will be able to build two homes, one of which will be handicap accessible.
The project will be sponsored by Larson Manufacturing, construction will be done by the NIACC building trades class and of course, community volunteers.
Laura Little, the program manager for the Habitat for Humanity in Mason City talked with us about the ground breaking event that will take place on Wednesday. She said that the event is open to the public and that the family that will be living in the handicap accessible home will be making an appearance to greet people and see the site.
Melissa Schoneberg, the Executive Director of the Mason City Habitat for humanity said that they still need volunteers for both projects and that anyone can get involved by signing up on their website.
Construction will begin after the ground breaking and they are hoping to have both homes livable by December.
