The Seneca County Habitat for Humanity board announced today that the home its volunteers have been building since May is now complete. The home, located at 36 Haigh Street in Seneca Falls, will be dedicated on Thursday, December 8th at 5:30pm. The event will be a celebration of countless hours of hard work by numerous volunteers and the family. This year’s family, Nina Figueroa, Colby Grillone, their six year old son Jameson, and nine month old daughter Italia, will be home for the holidays this year.
“On behalf of Habitat for Humanity of Seneca County Board of Directors, we are thrilled to be able to turn over the keys to their new home to Nina and Colby this holiday season. The family has worked hard, investing more than 400 hours. They will buy the home from us at about what it cost Habitat to build it. We are very grateful to the many volunteers and sponsors in our community who have given so generously of their time, talents and resources. They have provided the Figueroa/Grillone family a chance to build lasting memories in their new home,” said Karen Simon, President of the Habitat for Humanity of Seneca County Board of Directors.
