Summer Construction Update

July 28, 2015 | Leave a reply

Summer is here!  You are likely hearing the familiar sounds of the season like birds singing, bees buzzing, and children laughing and playing outside.  At Habitat for Humanity Capital District, the buzz of a saw and the thud of a hammer is what we’re hearing at this time of year.  Construction is in full swing in downtown Albany’s Sheridan Hollow and Troy’s North Central neighborhood. We recently celebrated our 100th house built here in the Capital District – and we need your support so we can build our next hundred homes!    Your gift of $25, $50, $100 or more will help purchase much-needed building supplies…things like nails, paint, lumber and roofing materials. Please consider joining our Carpenter’s Club, a monthly giving program that helps keep Habitat building all year long.    As a member of the Carpenter’s Club, you’ll receive invitations to VIP build days, exclusive discounts at the Habitat ReStore and the satisfaction in knowing that you are helping us build homes all year long. You can also make a one-time donation today. When you hear the buzz of a saw or the thud of a hammer this summer, think of the Habitat home your gift is building for another hardworking family […]

Celebrating “Fox Hollow”

June 19, 2015 | Leave a reply

Together with our volunteers, donors, friends, partners and families, Habitat dedicated “Fox Hollow” at Burden and Cross to our new homeowners and celebrated another milestone in the revitalization of a neighborhood. Fox Hollow is the largest building endeavor that Habitat for Humanity has ever pursued in the City of Troy and was built in loving memory of Seymour Fox, whose estate donated much of the property for this project. The rain held off long enough for us to proudly dedicate this thirteen-home development and share our joy in knowing that thirteen more hardworking families now have a safe, affordable home of their own. Mike Jacobson kicked off the morning by introducing incoming Executive Director Christine Schudde. Mayor Lou Rosamilia, County Executive Kathy Jimino and CEO YouthBuild Program Manager Angela Balogun also shared remarks and congratulations. Board member Brian Barker gave a beautiful blessing of “Fox Hollow” and our thirteen new homeowners. Check out the rest of our dedication photos over at our Facebook page. Thank you to photographer Josh Crystal for volunteering your services!   The dedication was covered by several local news outlets: Time Warner Cable News News 10 Channel 13 Troy Record Thanks to our project partners including the City […]
