Thanks Habitat Volunteers for Spring Cleaning Help

Thanks to the eight volunteers who turned up Saturday, Feb. 18, to help clean out the Habitat home at 310 M Street in Edwardsville.  All abandoned property was removed, along with the carpeting, padding and tackboards throughout the house. Even the kitchen was prepared for new flooring, and the basement looks like it’s never been used!  Cleanup outdoors has the property looking like a home again.

Stay tuned as we refresh the house and look for a deserving family to fill its rooms!

Thank you Dewey’s Pizza!
