Peterborough's Habitat for Humanity chapter started here back in 2002 and since then, with the help of many volunteers and the community's help, this non-profit organization has given many families a secure and safe home to be proud of and to know they were part of building their very own home. Just recently, Habitat has completed three homes on Towerhill Road with the help of Fleming's Sustainable Building Program, the Peterborough Professional Firefighters Association and community volunteers.
This Friday (October 22nd), there will be a dedication and celebration ceremony at 1 p.m. at 288 Towerhill Road to honour the accomplishment and the completion of these homes. It's an opportunity to meet the families and people of the community that in some way contributed to this wonderful cause.
