The team from Rockwell Automation worked alongside our own build team to make minor repairs and re-paint the inside of Meli’s home in conditions that went from freezing in the morning to hot by midday.
These repairs will help keep the home warmer and drier this winter, it looks and feels great and we couldn’t have done it without them all.
Habitat for Humanity Northern Region along with a small army of volunteers helped to paint the interior of a new Alcohol and Drug Drop-in Centre in Otara.
This is being set up by Joshua, a local pastor who knows first-hand the devastating effects alcohol and drugs have in our communities. Joshua is the Pastor of the Upper Room tabernacle based in Southmall, Manurewa and is passionate about helping alcoholics and addicts with setting up a centre where effected people can go for free counselling, meetings and refreshments with non-judgemental, compassionate help.
We wish to thank all of our amazing volunteers who gave their time to help David in cleaning up his garden in Manurewa. Their hard work over two very hot days will ensure he can now maintain the exterior of his home with minimal effort. He is very grateful for everyone’s time and support.
A special thank you to Central Landscape & Garden Supplies , Pink Bins Recycling Company Ltd and the team at Designer Gardens who helped Habitat with this project.
We couldn’t have done this without your support and expertise.
We had a great couple of busy volunteer group days on Thursday and Friday painting the Talo family home in Mangere.
We would like to give a huge thank you to our individual volunteers and also Jacobsen Flooring for being a huge part of the volunteer group and taking the time out of their week to help make this project possible. The Talo family are very grateful for the hard work our volunteers have done.
Also thank you to Auckland Glass who have kindly replaced the broken windows for this home at no charge, this means the home is now weather proof.
The family are very grateful for the support.
