Pyramid Construction Partners with Habitat for Humanity for Faith Blitz 2018
Faith Blitz 2018 Dedicated to the Kelley Family
Frank Thaggard of Pyramid Construction, along with many other local churches and businesses, are donating labor and supplies to help build the Kelley family home for Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland’s 2018 Faith Blitz Build initiative.
Habitat for Humanity’s Faith Blitz Build involves churches and businesses in the community coming together to build a Habitat home for a family. The project raises funds ($75,000) for construction while providing labor and prayer support to build a home for a local family.
With the mission of going out into the community to serve others, Faith Blitz 2018 is solely dedicated to helping the Kelley family build home. A single mother of two sons, Felecia Kelley has been living with her grandmother Mary for several years in an overcrowded home. Having been introduced to Habitat for Humanity back in 2009 through her cousin, Felecia looks forward to having a “stable place for [her] boys to grow up in and call home”. She believes that the homeownership program is not a handout but something you have to work for.
“It's a beautiful thing to see Pyramid Construction along with local churches from our community come together with Habitat to physically put God's love into action by building a home in our community,” said LaManda Bowers, Volunteer Manager at Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland. “There's no greater feeling than to be a part of something that changes a family's future for generations to come.”
Any church or business can contribute to the home building initiative through sponsorships, volunteering, or even providing a meal for other volunteers. LaManda said that “we all have the power to give a hand up for hope in our own unique way.”
Habitat and Pyramid Construction encourage all groups to volunteer— no experience is necessary to volunteer, and all faith groups are welcome. You will be taught everything you need to know on the build site, and there are a variety of tasks both indoors and outdoors that require all levels of skill and ability.
