Habitat kicks off build season with wall build

Zionsville — The sound of more than 60 hammers was heard for an hour Saturday morning, May 4, at the St. Alphonsus Catholic Church parking lot in Zionsville.

Area families enjoyed a sunny morning free of rain as they built walls for Habitat for Humanity Boone County’s 2013 Apostles Build, which will take place throughout the next eight weeks at 1415 S. Meridian St. in Lebanon. Families with preschoolers to teenagers got into the fun and excitement of hammering 16 penny nails into 2 x 4 and 2 x 6 studs that were precut and laid out on the parking lot ready to be put together.

“The 2013 Habitat Wall Build reflected a community spirit of service and giving,” said Tony Kaufmann of St. Alphonsus. “Over 60 volunteers, young and old, came prepared to give of themselves to help in some small way to make a difference in the life of a family in need.”

Also helping hammer nails was 2013 Apostles Build homeowner, Anita Kolp, and her father.  

“It was fun, and it was wonderful to see so many volunteers show up to help with the first step of building my home,” Kolp said.

The wall build was followed by a cookout at the church for all the volunteers.

The eight-week build will be made up of four-day work weeks, Tuesday-Wednesday and Friday-Saturday, starting at 8:30 a.m. and ending at 4 p.m. Lunches will be provided each work day by partner churches.

For more information on how to help with this build, contact Stacy Snively at  937-2577 or Steve Furste at 313-6864.
