The Battalion
Habitat for Humanity will mark
the beginning of construction on its
27th volunteer-built house in
Bryan-College Station with a
ground-breaking ceremony today.
The groundbreaking will be at
6:30 p.m. at 311 June St. in Bryan.
Rusleen Maurice, board mem
ber of Habitat for Humanity and
chair of the public relations com
mittee, said that this ground
breaking celebration is important
to the community.
“It makes everyone aware
we’re putting another family in
need into a decent, safe and af
fordable house,” Maurice said.
Maurice said they have re
ceived support from various
community organizations. The
Texas A&M chapter of Habitat
for Humanity helps raise funds
for building the houses. The
construction of the house is spon
sored by Norwest bank.
She said there were 13 lots do
nated this year, and Habitat for
Humanity has not had to fund
any of the houses.
Maurice said houses usually
take three to four months to build,
tion, the family can move in.
Maurice said Fred Patterson of
Bryan has donated his time to de
sign the houses.
The land that the house will
occupy was donated by the city
of Bryan. All the property in
Miracle Place, a subdivision
for Habitat for Humanity
homes, was donated by
the city of Bryan.
Maurice said the
families help with
cepted into the program are those
that could not get a loan. Habitat
for Humanity advertises and dis
tributes bulletins and holds pub
lic meetings to reach
out to families
in need.
