Habitat seeks volunteers for Issaquah, Renton sites

January 18, 2011

By Staff

Habitat for Humanity of East King County is in the midst of construction on homes in the Issaquah Highlands and the Renton Highlands.

The nonprofit organization seeks volunteers to help build homes at the construction sites. As an enticement, Habitat has created the Chilly Chili Challenge. During the event, volunteers chow down on a hot lunch of chili, soup and other goodies donated by local businesses and churches.

The event is scheduled for the Issaquah construction site on Thursdays through Feb. 10. The event comes to the Renton construction site Jan. 27.

Volunteers can register at the Habitat website, www.habitatekc.org, or send questions to volunteer@habitatekc.org.

Habitat coordinators broke ground for the Renton Highlands project last June. Plans call for the community, called La Fortuna, to include 41 homes. The organization is also nearing completion on Issaquah Highlands homes.

Habitat also plans to rolls out the Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative in communities near the La Fortuna neighborhood in the months ahead. Through the program, Habitat plans to assist low-income families in updating homes though weatherization, “green” building practices and home repairs.
