Louisville Metro Council
Councilwomen Tina Ward-Pugh (D-9) and Attica Scott (D-1) will be on hand with volunteers from Girls Scouts of Kentuckiana and Semonin Realtors to help build a new home for a deserving family this weekend in the Shively area.
“It is an honor to join the Girl Scouts in a project that celebrates their 100 years of community service as an organization,” says Ward-Pugh. “What better way to celebrate their birthday by helping Habitat for Humanity fulfill the dream of a local family with a new home.”
Habitat is working through September 15th at a home off Cane Run Rd. in the Shively area.
“This is another opportunity to show how we build neighborhoods in District 1 and throughout Metro Louisville,” says Scott. “When we strengthen the future of one family, we in turn strengthen our neighborhoods.”
This is a first of its kind project for Habitat, a partnership of for profit and nonprofit between Semonin and the Girl Scouts. Some 200 Semonin volunteers and 60 adult volunteers from the Girl Scouts will work on this home.
“I would encourage everyone who is interested in helping provide shelter for a deserving family to volunteer for a project like this,” says Ward-Pugh.
Ward-Pugh and Scott will join the volunteers from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 15th. A ground blessing ceremony is set for 11:30am.
The home is located in Scott’s District. Councilwomen Ward-Pugh and Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13) sponsored a community grant to help Habitat build the home. Sponsor:
