Habitat for Humanity of North Collin County Dedicates Perkins Home
McKinney, TX (July 27, 2017) – Habitat for Humanity of North Collin County (NCC Habitat) celebrated the completed construction of the home for the Perkins Family with a Home Dedication Ceremony on Saturday, July 22 at 11:00 am. This ceremony took place in McKinney, TX at the site of the home.
Homeowner, Linda Perkins, and her family have waited and worked hard for this day to finally arrive. We are excited to share this moment with them and look forward to seeing her walk down this path to stability, strength and independence for her family through this home. “I just want to say thank you to Habitat and everyone who helped on the house,” said Linda Perkins. “I never thought I would be able to own a home.”
The family was introduced, sponsors spoke, volunteers and staff were thanked and enjoyed seeing the finished home. Blessing on the home and those it will shelter were offered. City Councilman, La’Shadion Shemwell, from District 1 was also there and offered a McKinney welcome to the family.
Some of our many generous Home Sponsors including Martin Marietta, St. Gabriel the Archangel, HighPointe Church of Christ, Trinity Presbyterian Church, Simpson Strong Tie, Bud & Sharon Ward, Crosspoint Church, Keller Williams, Texas Republic Bank, Habitat ReStore and our Carpenters Club members will be in attendance.
