Habitat For Humanity Holds ‘Raise The Wall Ceremony’

Habitat for Humanity of Findlay/Hancock County held a Raise the Wall Ceremony to mark the beginning of construction of home builds number 56 and 57.

The Raise the Wall Ceremony took place at 524 North Cory Street in Findlay.

House 56, the Bennington family home, is being funded and built by the employees of Marathon Petroleum Corporation.

House 57, the Lowry-Haas family home, is an Apostle Build, funded and built by area churches and their parishioners.

Executive Director Wendy McCormick thanked the many volunteers who help make these projects possible.



The two homes will be completed simultaneously and will be Habitat’s second double build of the year.

More than 300 volunteers have been secured to build each of the new homes in just six weeks.

The two homes are the third and fourth homes to be built in 2023.

Habitat has the commitment to construct two double builds in 2023 to provide additional workforce housing to stabilize and strengthen more families within the community.
