MADISON COUNTY —
Madison County Habitat for Humanity, in cooperation with Syracuse Habitat for Humanity, will be deconstructing a house near Hamilton during the month of November. Deconstructing is the process of carefully taking apart a building to save as much of the material as possible.
Volunteers will be removing cabinets, plumbing fixtures, electrical outlets and switches, lights, doors, windows and more. How much can be saved is directly related to how many volunteers are on hand to help.
Madison County HfH will be using this material in several home repair projects through its “A Brush With Kindness” program. Although no special skills are required to help deconstruct, those with construction skills are needed.
There will be an informational meeting about this project at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 19 at St Mary’s Church in Hamilton. For more information, call Rev. Greg Wright (315-374-9054) or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
