Thanks to the hard work of hundreds of volunteers, the Habitat for Humanity house will be completed ahead of schedule.
The Red Lion Habitat house is well under works as students and volunteers work to finish sanding and putting up drywall. FFA is working on landscaping the exterior of the house and hoping to get a donated lawn mower to give to the homeowner, Ashley Moffitt.
Hard work and contribution that Red Lion has had towards the cause has really paid off so far, according to Mr. Grant Gouker.
“We have had a tremendous turn out from groups here at the school, including NHS, choir and wrestling just to name a few of them,” Mr. Gouker said.
Progress on the house has occurred faster than what was initially expected.
“We are looking at the end of March as a completion date which is two months ahead of what we were originally projecting at the beginning of the project,” Mr. Gouker said. “This is largely due to the great work ethic of Red Lion students.”
Habitat has a goal of raising $90,000 in order to complete the project. Mr. Gouker reports that the goal is very realistic as they currently have about $75,000.
Students still have the opportunity to sign up to volunteer up through March. Volunteers can be individuals or groups with clubs or organizations. Sign up at tinyurl.com/RLHabitat
