Habitat House sponsored by ISU being moved to permanent location Friday

Who: Indiana State University and Habitat for Humanity

What: Moving framed walls and assembling at construction site

When and Where: Starting around 8:30 a.m. and continuing throughout the morning Friday, March 17, at the John T. Myers Technology Center (the driveway at 101 N. Sixth St.), framed walls will be loaded onto trucks and delivered to 13 1/2 and Seabury, where they will be erected. (Thursday, March 16, teams of volunteers are prepping the work site.)

The framing of the 51st Habitat for Humanity house in Terre Haute has been completed in the Construction Technology Lab at Indiana State University by students, faculty and staff, and the structure will be moved to its permanent location at the corner of 13 1/2 and Seabury on Friday, March 17.

When completed later this spring, it will become the home of Habitat partner family Holly Wolfe and her three children -- Cearra, Davonte and Abbrianna.

The Habitat house project is being coordinated by ISU's Center for Public Service and Community Engagement, in conjunction with the annual April observance of Human Rights Day in Terre Haute. More than 180 students, faculty and staff volunteered for the project, and the ISU community raised more than $11,000 toward the cost of the home.
