Habitat to offer coffee, informationPublished 3:43pm Thursday, May 31, 2012
Having a partner can make projects go more quickly and Habitat for Humanity is hoping a cup of coffee and some information will help create new partnership for the organization. Alecia Glaize, director of Escambia County HFH, said a special information session Friday could provide information needed for potential volunteers and contractors to make their decision to join the group. “We want anyone who is interested in partnering with Habitat for Humanity as a volunteer or even a paid contractor to learn more about what we do,” Glaize said. “We wanted to provide an opportunity to offer information and we thought a nice coffee break would do that.” A coffee break will be held for builders and contractors at the Habitat ReStore Friday beginning at 10 a.m. Glaize said. During the gathering, Habitat officials will explain how HFH, Auburn’s School of Architecture and the Homebuilders Association of Alabama work together to create homes for families in need. On hand for the coffee break gathering will be Glaize along with ReStore Manager Jack O’Neil ; HFH Construction Coordinator Rusty Miller; HFH Project Coordinator Doug Norsworthy as well as Page Ledbetter, graduate of Auburn’s School of Architecture and green build specialist with the Alabama Association of Habitat affiliates.
