Why are these people so happy? It’s because of Habitat for Humanity of White County. Habitat White County makes a lot of people happy because its vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Who could be unhappy about that?
The White County chapter was founded in 2006 and has a happy staff, including Executive Director Rick Eichorn, all working out of the Habitat ReStore location at 3702 East Race. The Habitat ReStore is a re-sale shop that sells donated items. By operating this store, Habitat White County is able to raise enough money to fulfill their mission of helping families get out of substandard housing. Visit the ReStore and you’ll find great bargains and a lot of happy shoppers.
What Habitat for Humanity is famous for, however, is building houses for folks who need them, right here in our community. Just imagine how happy these new homeowners are to be able to move out of substandard housing into something safe and attractive at last.
Habitat White County makes the Command Construction team happy as well. The Habitat staff has discovered that, in the concrete construction phase of building a new dwelling for a deserving family, they can call on the Command Construction team to drop by and take care of their concrete construction needs on a volunteer basis. The Command Construction team is happy to give a little back to the community that has given it so much. Eichorn said he has known Command Construction owner Jason Evans for many years through family, community, and industry connections and knows he is generous and values the community highly. Eichorn particularly appreciates the quality concrete construction Command teams provide on the home sites. He said ‘It’s not just a volunteer thing with them; the quality really matters.’ For Eichorn, it’s also important that the Command concrete team is friendly and knowledgeable, and the homeowners really like working with them.
Don’t let the staff, the ReStore shoppers, and the Command Construction team have all the fun! You can become a volunteer at Habitat White County, too, by calling 501-278-7591 or dropping by the ReStore. Come on, get happy!
