Habitat for Humanity Lloydminster has played host to 3 Canada Builds Teams since June. The first team of volunteers that arrived in June made history as the first Canada Builds team to build on a Habitat project that is being constructed on reserve land. The Elders Lodge project is an integrated build project that will see 10 units built to better suit the lifestyle of the Elders. The homes that the Elders will move out of will be retrofitted and young aboriginal families will realize their dream of homeownership.
It was not all work, the teams were able to take part in the fair, the chuckwagons and many cultural activites through out their stay.
The 4th Team from led by Karen Sturnick from Washington arrived August 30. The team members came from all across the USA to volunteer on the Elders Lodge Project.
Locally we have had volunteers from the Church of Latter Day Saints and Lakeland College Real Estate Appraisal class volunteer.
If you are interested in volunteering on the Elders Lodge Project please contact Marie McCullum 306-304-7172 or Angela McKenzie 587-789-1455
