A non-profit celebrates a milestone groundbreaking. Habitat for Humanity of Calhoun County broke ground on their 155th house. This home is the result of the “Phil Webb Square Foot Challenge.” Phil Webb is donating a quarter of the home being built for Financial Support Worker Natalie Herron. Herron says she and her daughter are overjoyed about their new home.
Herron says she has worked hard to come this far. This is the first Habitat home to be built in Oxford in nearly 20 years. Habitat for Humanity President Becky Hollingsworth and Operations Director Amanda Pinson says it’s all about giving people a place to call their own.
The Calhoun County Habitat for Humanity strives to give everyone a decent place to live. If you would like to donate, volunteer, or are interested in becoming a part of the program, you can visit the main office or give them a call.
