York Habitat for Humanity will Hold Home Dedication Wednesday October 11th in York, Public Invited

York Habitat for Humanity dedicated their 124th home to first-time homeowner Candis Randall and family on Wednesday, October 11, 2017.  This property, a five bedroom split level unit, is located at 2296 Brougher Lane in York and was donated to York Habitat for Humanity by two private citizens.

As with all of York Habitat’s homes, this Habitat for Humanity house was built primarily by volunteers, including staff from several local businesses.  Many local organizations and churches also contributed countless hours completing the project.  Close to 4,000 volunteer hours were completed in building this home including several shifts of just female workers during York Habitat’s Women Build sponsored by Lowes.

Helping to complete the build, and donating materials as well as expertise, were Kinsley Materials, Exterior Expressions, The Wolf Organization, York Building Products, York/Adams Professional Masons Association, York Technical Institute and Shiloh Landscaping.

The Randall family has been working with York Habitat for Humanity for more than a year now with the actual construction taking just six months.  During that time, Candis prepared for becoming a homeowner by attending Habitat classes and keeping a strict monthly budget. Candis was also required to perform at least 225 hours of “Sweat Equity” to the project.  Friends, family and co-workers of the Randalls also put in countless hours working on the new home.

The official Dedication Ceremony began at 5:30 PM on Wednesday, October 11th and the public was invited.   An open house took place immediately following the Dedication Ceremony, to give everyone a chance to tour the home and meet Candis and her four children.
