Two local families receive the keys to their new Habitat for Humanity homes in Lindsay

KAWARTHA LAKES-It was an emotional day as two local families received the keys to their new Habitat for Humanity homes on Monday.

The Sorensen family, Sean, Tara, Jahmes and Sean said they had hoped and prayed this day would come. The Mills family, Will, Brea, Hunter, Hadley and Braxton made pictures for all of the staff and volunteers.

493 Volunteers and 2788 volunteer hours helped build the two homes. Homeowner families build their homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With Habitat’s help, families can achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to create better lives for themselves and their children.

Every dollar invested in Habitat’s work in Canada results in about $4 benefits to society.
