The Wongler family will be celebrating the holidays in their new ENERGY STAR home this year, thanks to Warrick County Habitat for Humanity and the Warrick County ReStore. The ReStore is a fundraising venture of Warrick County Habitat for Humanity that sells new and used building supplies and home furnishings to the general public to raise funds to build Habitat houses in Warrick County. This is the 2nd home in Warrick County built by the efforts of the ReStore!
We would also like to thank the many volunteers and donors who have given time or services to make this home possible. Without the support of the local community, this program could not be possible! So, thank you---for helping to build it!!!!
Lou and Debbie Wongler will be given the keys to their new house at 414 South Second Street in Boonville, Indiana at 2:00 p.m. this Sunday. You are invited to celebrate with them on this joyous occasion, as we pray a prayer of blessing and dedicate this house.
