Two new homes to be built in 2012
BRAMPTON, ON, April 18, 2012 /CNW/ - Habitat for Humanity Brampton today announced it is launching a 36inTEN campaign to build 36 homes over the next 10 years in Brampton. The first home, being built on Hoskins Square, is nearing completion and Habitat for Humanity revealed it will be building two more homes at this site in 2012.
"More than 200 companies contributed and 600+ people volunteered to building our first home on Hoskins Square," says Thomas Fischer, executive director, Habitat for Humanity Brampton. "Business, government and everyday Canadians collaborated to make something very important come to fruition here in Brampton. We've been very impressed with the community response and are excited to be launching this new 36inTEN campaign, which includes two new homes at Hoskins Square and a total of 36 homes over the next 10 years."
Habitat Brampton is off to a strong start as it nears completion of its first home in Hoskins Square. Completion of this first home was put on hold at the end of last year while additional infrastructure was added to the site following approval of the decision to build two more homes at this location.
"We're offering a helping hand to families seeking affordable home ownership in Brampton, where there is so much pent up demand," adds Fischer. "It's a tremendously rewarding experience to give 36 families a hand up, in attaining the dream of home ownership and improving their quality of life."
Habitat Brampton has immediately embarked on a drive to find additional families and is actively reaching out to corporations and donors regarding the next two homes scheduled to be built this year at Hoskins Square. Habitat is seeking both single and multiple home sponsors for this ambitious 36inTEN campaign.
