Becca Randall, community development coordinator for Habitat for Humanity, recently spoke to Kiwanis about its mission and projects. They have just finished their 84th house in Brunswick and are starting their 85th on Amber Street. Habitat homes are not given away. Owners have to put in a number of hours of “sweat equity” and they have to qualify for the Habitat mortgage. Habitat homes are simple, safe homes. Habitat has also started ReStore a non profit home improvement store.

The monies from ReStore can build two houses a year. Pictured are Shaw McVeigh, Kiwanis program director, from left; Becca Randall; and Will McKenzie, Kiwanis president.
