Habitat for Humanity of Sangamon County building 99th house

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD - Habitat for Humanity of Sangamon County is encouraging central Illinois residents to help with a building project to help a local family in need starting on June 22.

Habitat for Humanity officials say the project is scheduled to begin at 11:00 a.m., with Habitat volunteers and local churches helping to build a home on the corner of South Ninth Street and Wellesly Avenue in Springfield.  Upon completion, the home's new owner will make monthly mortgage payments through a zero interest no-profit loan, which will help Habitat for Humanity build more houses in Sangamon County.

Officials say the family being helped through this project will be the 99th family in Sangamon County to receive a house.  If you would like to volunteer for this project, or a project in the future, call (217) 523-2710 or visit http://www.habitatsangamon.com.
