Governor Bill Lee And First Lady Lee Will Volunteer In Cleveland For Leaders Build Day July 31

Friday, July 24, 2020

Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland announces Governor Bill Lee, First Lady Maria Lee and Tennessee Serves volunteers are coming to Victory Cove subdivision in Cleveland for Leaders Build Day on Friday, July 31. They will be bringing a team of 10 volunteers to help build a Habitat home.

Officials said, "The goal of Tennessee Serves is to transform our state through service, by encouraging volunteers to serve their communities, one person at a time. Habitat is a perfect fit to achieve these goals.

"Will you be next? Are you willing to step out of your business or home office and step on to the construction site for a four-hour build shift?

"As you may know, in Victory Cove we have several houses being built at the same time. We are hoping to have 20-30 leaders, working on multiple houses to continue the progress. These families can’t wait to have a safe home to call their own by the end of this year. Every nail you hammer and every piece of wood you carry is framing a lifetime of hope for generations to come."

On Friday, July 31, up to 10 leaders will work in the morning shift from 8 a.m.-noon and up to 10 in the afternoon from noon-4 p.m.

To follow the CDC guidelines, boxed lunches will be served with food stations at each build site for each shift.

First Lady Lee and homeowners will be speaking during lunch, but six feet social distancing guidelines will be followed at all times on site.
 
The event will take place in the Victory Cove subdivision at 1236 Franitza Way in Cleveland.

Officials said, "We will provide hand sanitizing stations and will take precautions to keep tools clean. Work gloves and masks will be provided, or feel free to bring your own.
 
"Thank you for your consideration and support of the Habitat mission. Together, we can build hope in our community, one family at a time."
 
Kyle and Kelley Mulcahy will be new homeowners this year. They are putting in their "sweat equity" hours so their family of five will have a safe and affordable place of their own.

Kelley says, "Growing up, my dad always told me that I needed to be a leader instead of a follower. I never knew the impact that it would have had on my life. It's amazing to me to watch God’s plan be fulfilled and to see it come full circle physically. I cannot wait to begin to be a co-leader to my children in our new home."
