Three Vernon families will be celebrating the holidays in their new homes as a result of their partnership with Habitat for Humanity Okanagan. The public is invited to join in the celebrations on Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to noon at 2404 35th Ave.
Hundreds of volunteers, thousands of hours and dozens of generous community sponsors have culminated in safe, decent and affordable housing for these local families. Habitat for Humanity Okanagan is excited to celebrate the completion of the 35th Avenue Triplex build with the Habitat key ceremony with speeches by local dignitaries honouring the volunteers, a ribbon cutting ceremony, key presentation, tours and refreshments.
The key ceremony aims to bring together the new homeowners, neighbours, volunteers, donors and sponsors to celebrate the completion of three beautiful homes.
“I am so very proud of our Vernon Chapter and all our partners who have contributed to make this project possible. The Vernon 35th Avenue Triplex is an excellent example of a beautifully designed affordable home,” said Board Chair, Habitat for Humanity Okanagan, Stacey Fenwick. “Affordable housing is a trending topic for all levels of government and is a critical issue in our Okanagan Valley. The Habitat model of affordable home ownership is not only about affordable housing but also community building and economic empowerment. I would like to invite anyone interested in the affordable housing issue to reach out to Habitat to learn more about how you can make a difference.”
