Habitat for Humanity triplex

Three Vernon families will celebrate the holidays this year as new home owners.

The newly completed Habitat for Humanity triplex at 2404-35th Avenue is officially welcoming the new residents to their homes tomorrow with a key ceremony and celebration from 10:30 am - 12:00 pm.

Tomorrow's event also recognizes the many contributions of the community, trades and dozens of volunteers who made this project a reality.

Habitat for Humanity builds affordable homes in partnership with volunteers and Habitat homeowners.

The families partner with the non-profit agency to pay an interest-free mortgage based on income, and also volunteer 500 hours with the organization.
