On Saturday, September 9th, students from Middlebury College helped. They did a great job. On Wednesday, the 13th we continued to build the roof trusses. After Middlebury College visit, we received this note...
"Hi Rutland Habitat for Humanity,
Thank you very much for hosting our group this past Saturday. These trips make a big impact on our new students and the trips couldn’t happen without wonderful community partners like you. We were so pleased to work with you this year, and it was great that we were able to introduce the great work that you do to the first year students. Thank you again so much for your time and energy!Warmly, Ariana Hernandez

Transforming people's lives and our community by creating affordable and decent housing, lifting up one household at a time.
There are many ways, large and small, that people can make a difference. You do NOT need to be skilled as a carpenter. Think of Habitat as a small business that is entirely run by volunteers. We estimate that half of the hours contributed by volunteers are completed by people who never pound a single nail. If you admire Habitat's mission and want to have an impact locally, please contact us.
Consider donating your used car to Habitat. HfHI will handle all the details. If you designate that you want the proceeds to come to our affiliate, the value of your gift will make a difference locally.
