    Volunteers Needed to Build Starke-Pulaski Habitat for Humanity House

    Published: August 1st, 2014
    Construction is scheduled to begin Saturday, Aug. 9 on Starke/Pulaski Habitat for Humanity’s fifth home. It will be located at 712 South West Street in Winamac. Work will take place on Saturdays until the home is finished. Volunteers are needed to help with construction, clean up and meal preparation for the work crew. Construction volunteers must be 16 or older. On-site supervisors will provide hands-on training, so prior building experience is not a requirement. Tools will be provided, or volunteers may bring their own.

    In addition to volunteers, materials are also needed. Habitat officials say no donation is too small. Everything from a box of nails to building materials will be put to use. Future homeowners Ray and Raychel Davis will also assist with the construction, as Habitat for Humanity requires prospective owners to contribute “sweat equity” to the project. Homes are sold to low-income families at no profit and are financed with affordable loans. The owners’ monthly mortgage payments are used to build more Habitat homes.

    This is the fifth home built by Starke/Pulaski Habitat for Humanity. Anyone interested in volunteering may contact Ray Michau at 574-595-7803 or email; Wendy Hoppe at 574-896-2811 or email; or Steve Morrison at 574-595-5227 or For more information about the organization, visit
