Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna's Latest Build
First Cecil County Home for Habitat Susquehanna to be Dedicated
(Bel Air, MD) – On Friday, September 9, Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna, the ecumenical non-profit housing organization devoted to building, renovating and repairing homes for low-income families, will dedicate its inaugural Cecil County home at 28 Cherry Lane in Elkton. This is the first project completed as the newly merged Habitat Susquehanna affiliate, which formed from the partnership of Habitat for Humanity of Cecil County and Harford Habitat for Humanity.
The ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. All are welcome to cheer on the Warren-Price family as they cut the ribbon across the front door of their new home. Refreshments will be graciously provided by Milburn Orchards, Cakes by Crystal, and APGFCU.
The house was built primarily by students at the Cecil County School of Technology in two parts before it was transported to its current location on Cherry Lane. Volunteers from Harford and Cecil Counties pitched in to complete the finishing touches.
This project was made possible by many generous sponsors including PNC Bank; APGFCU; Hollywood Casino; Wachovia Foundation; Artesian Resources; Dennis A. Reynolds Trucking and Excavating; John Price Trucking; The Lions Club of Rising Sun; McCrone Engineering; Maryland Materials; Rising Sun Chamber of Commerce; TitlePoint; Valspar Paint; Whirlpool Corporation; The Gutter Guys; Delmarva Power; York Building Projects; Sheriff Barry Janney; Carl D. Roberts; Mr. & Mrs. Michael Pugh; Weyrich, Cronin and Sorra; The Baltimore Community Foundation; and Survice Engineering Company.
The Warren-Price family wishes to express their gratitude to the many sponsors, donors and volunteers who helped to bring their dreams to life.
“This is what we’ve been working for,” said Lura Price. “We do appreciate this very much.”
