MCA CONTINUES PARTNERSHIP WITH HABITAT FOR HUMANITY AS NEW FAMILY HOME NEARS COMPLETION
In just a short time, the Saucier-Leaf family of five will open the door to their brand-new Cornwall home, a result of the generous work of the Habitat for Humanity non-profit organization. The new home is receiving its final interior finishings, and the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne (MCA) chiefs were hands-on today painting and assisting.
Habitat for Humanity relies on partnerships and volunteer work to help families experience the dream of home ownership. The soon to be homeowners have volunteered many hours of their own and were present today while Council took part in a volunteer “Build Day”.
Last year, MCA was approached by the Cornwall Habitat for Humanity and a member of Akwesasne requesting a partnership. MCA was proud to help by donating a parcel of off-reserve land to the project.
The home is expected to be completed in April.
