The fine folks from Habitat for Humanity stopped by CBS Studios this week for an interview with Roxanne Wilder on The Current. It was a monumental week for Habitat, in that they dedicated their 300th home to a family in Pinellas County. Tamara Harrell was handed the keys to a new home on Monday, and as it has been for other recipients, it was a life-changing event for Tamara.
The dedication was also significant because it marks the beginning of the new Neighborhood Preservation Partnership. It will be known as the Midtown Mercy Neighborhood Partnership and will offer affordable home rehabilitation services to homeowners that fall into a certain income bracket. Congratulations to Habitat for Humanity Pinellas and for more information, please visit them online.
If you’re looking for a way to give back, why not volunteer with the Girl Scouts of West Florida. Roxanne Wilder spoke with Jennifer Medeiros about the need for volunteers, what it takes to become a volunteer and the activities planned for local Girl Scout troops over the summer.
