Habitat For Humanity House In Sorento Is Making Progress

Volunteers put up drywall in the new Habitat for Humanity home in Sorento.

The newest Habitat for Humanity house in Sorento is finally getting back on track after winter weather delays. Eric Watterson, with the Bond County chapter of Habitat for Humanity, told us the team is now making great progress with the house’s interior.

“We have been working on drywall the last several weeks and we are making really, really good progress,” Watterson told WGEL. “We’ve had a number of students from Greenville College come out. We’ve had people from churches in the area. First Christian Church in Greenville has been out, providing work, providing lunch. So we’re making good progress and my hope would be to get all the drywall up by Easter so that we can move on to having the drywall finished, getting it painted, and then keep moving forward with getting all the interior details worked out.”

Watterson said he hopes to have the house completely finished this summer. If you’re interested in making a donation or volunteering, call Eric at 322-0080.
