Help Us Build Houses!

By Stephanie Rose

I just got some information in the mail about helping to build Habitat for Humanity houses. My goal is to get a KAXE team of staff and volunteers together to do this. We’d partner with other community members and build a lasting sense of community … that’s what we do at KAXE!

Habitat Homes are built using 90 percent volunteer labor and donated material. It takes an average of 2,050 volunteer hours to finish a three-bedroom home. Right now Itasca county Habitat for Humanity is working on two homes in Bovey and one in Calumet. Since 1992, they’ve provided 27 families with simple, decent, affordable housing. That’s more than 40 adults and 72 children! That's awesome!

Would you like to help? It’s going to be fun, and rewarding and fulfilling. No experience is necessary, and there are all kinds of jobs to do. Send me an e-mail or call me at 218.326.1234 if you’d like to be part of the KAXE-Habitat team. We'll get it done.
