Join us in celebration as we dedicate the home built for a Lucas County family by the City of Toledo, Lucas County Land Bank, and Therma-Tru with Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity.
Toledo, OH. – The City of Toledo, Department of Neighborhoods and the Lucas County Land Bank have generously supported the building of a Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity home for Future Homeowner Tesha and her family.
Unique to this build project is the employee involvement of Therma-Tru Doors. Therma-Tru has been a corporate partner of Maumee Valley Habitat since the start of their program. Over the past two years, their employees have volunteered on builds in teams of 20 or more a day completing the majority of the project work. Because of their volunteer efforts, the majority of the project was completed in a few weeks!
This home is finished and ready for the family to start a new life within its walls, but first we join together to celebrate everything accomplished by this family, this sponsors, and volunteers at the home’s dedication! The first Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity dedication of the 2017 year!
