Catoosa County Habitat For Humanity Volunteers Help Local Resident

Thursday, November 9, 2017

On Saturday, volunteers representing Habitat for Humanity of Catoosa County converged on a home to help out a local resident. “It is just a blessing to see people coming out here to help their neighbor,” said Penny Mahon, Catoosa Habitat’s executive director.  Volunteers consisted of local residents of Catoosa County helping to prep the interior of the home for painting and to lay down new flooring.

“We are just happy to be here,” said one volunteer. “The mission of Habitat is to completely eliminate poverty housing and this project is just one way I can help to make that happen.” The volunteers for the day came from all types of professions from a lawyer, to a stay at home mother.  “This group just shows that anyone can volunteer with Habitat regardless of what their profession is,” said Ms.

Mahon.

The flooring that Habitat received was a donation from Shaw Industries. “Shaw has been so supportive of our cause to eliminate poverty housing and we thank them for their generous support.” Ms. Mahon said.  Tearing up old flooring and lying down new was a major accomplishment of the volunteers. “The rooms that received new flooring today were in desperate need of it and we are so glad that we were able to do this.”

Donations for the day also consisted of food for the volunteers. “We would also like to thank Jack’s and their General Manager Corey Sanders for their generous donation of food,” said Ms. Mahon. “Our volunteers were delighted with lunch and thankful for Jack’s.” She also emphasized that any restaurant or church group willing to provide lunch for volunteer groups should not hesitate to contact Catoosa Habitat’s office.  “We are always in need of donations of food for our volunteer groups.”

TVA Land Grab

The Georgetown land grab is just ‘Business as Usual’ for TVA.

All by the same play book. All from average people. We want this, you have this, we get this. I worked with TVA as a ... (click for more)
