Habitat names family for home No. 8

Natchez-Adams County Habitat for Humanity, a United Way agency, is proud to announce the selection of the newest homeowner family, Mr. and Mrs. Philip Rachal.

The couple has four children, and Mr. Rachal is the son of a current Habitat owner. This home will be located at 1016 Martin Luther King St., right next door to the house Habitat finished in June.

Habitat had the lot surveyed, courtesy of Jordan, Kaiser & Sessions engineers. The lot has been cleared of trees, and dirt was brought in to level the area.

Volunteers are already working on the foundation. Completion of the home is expected in May or June.

Habitat homes are built with volunteer labor, and several groups have expressed an interest in coming to help. These are Alcorn School of Nursing, Alcorn ABEC group, Delta Sigma Theta, Grace United Methodist Church, Cathedral High School students, Kiwanis Club and St. Mary Basilica.

In addition, several individuals are ready to come once the foundation is completed.

If you have a group interested in working on the next home, please call 601-807-4956. Individuals are welcome also. No special skills or tools are needed.

As many of you know, Habitat for Humanity is a Christian ministry engaged in the construction of decent, affordable housing for lower-income families. More than 700,000 homes, housing 3.5 million residents, have been built worldwide.

The organization is currently building 100,000 homes annually. Here in Natchez, this is the 18th home built by Habitat since 1991.

You can make a financial donation through United Way by designating Habitat on your pledge card, or you may send it directly to Habitat for Humanity, PO Box 100, Natchez, MS, 39121.

Please contact Mrs. Connie Burns at 601-445-8388 if you want to apply for a Habitat home.

 

Duncan McFarlane is Natchez-Adams County Habitat for Humanity secretary.
