Habitat for Humanity of Wood County Ohio will host a ground-breaking ceremony for its build in Bowling Green at the corner of Clough Street and Manville Avenue on Aug. 15 at 11 a.m.
Future homeowner Amy Olea said she is appreciative and excited to be on the journey of homeownership. She said that she always believed that owning a home would be “a firm foundation, stability for myself and my children.”
Olea, along with representatives from the organization, City of Bowling Green, Bowling Green State University and elected officials will share remarks.
The ceremony will kick off construction for the second of three homes to being built in the city. Habitat for Humanity of Wood County and its partners dedicated the first home in 2019. The third home is slated for construction in fall 2020.
The lots for the three homes were donated by the Bowling Green Department of Public Utilities in 2017, giving Habitat the land resources necessary to build within city limits for the first time.
“We invite the public to join us and our partners in celebrating this pivotal event,” said Executive Director Mark Ohashi.
This home is being built with the support from Wells Fargo, Wood County Hospital Staff, NSG, Bowling Green Rotary Club, Cooper Standard, Fifth Third Bank and Farmers & Merchants State Bank.
“We are also pleased to have the support of volunteer groups from BGSU, the BGSU HFHW Campus Chapter, and the Bowling Green Chapter of the Aktion Club,” Ohashi said.
Sponsorship opportunities to complete funding for the project are still available. Contact Ohashi at email@example.com to become a sponsor.
