The City of Fishers is excited to partner with Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity for a Panel Build event on Friday, October 6 from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Holland Park (1 Park Drive).
Nearly 100 volunteers and community partners will assemble wall panels for a future home for a family in need in the Greater Indianapolis area.
"This event symbolizes what Fishers is all about - community, collaboration, and compassion. Through partnerships like this one with Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity and with the help of local business sponsors, we are not just building a home but bringing our community together to work toward a common cause,” said Mayor Scott Fadness.
A board cutting ceremony will take place at 10:30 a.m. with Mayor Fadness, Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity and the future homeowner.
“Homeownership for me and my children would mean lifelong stability," said Briannca, the Habitat for Humanity homebuyer who will build her home alongside City of Fishers. “I will be the first person in my immediate family to be a homeowner. I will be able to show my children that it is achievable with hard work, and more importantly dedication.”
“Habitat’s mission to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope will be on full display this Friday alongside volunteers with the City of Fishers,” said Abri Hochstetler, VP of Development & Communications for Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity. “The opportunity for first-time homeownership is becoming more difficult to achieve so we are grateful for the generous support from the Fishers community to help make this dream of homeownership possible for Briannca and her family.”
Special thanks to sponsors CRG Residential, Indy Fuel, Meyer Najem and RQAW for contributing funding and volunteers to make this possible.
