Sussex County Habitat for Humanity dedicates home in Seaford


On Saturday, September 19 at noon, Sussex County Habitat for Humanity will dedicate the latest Habitat built house in Concord Village, Seaford. At that time, it will become the home of Manda Willey and her son.

Manda Willey and local Sussex County Habitat for Humanity volunteers were helped during the summer by groups from St. Louis Parish, Clarksville, MD; St. Andrews Lutheran Church, Dover DE; St Pius X Church, Bowie, MD; and Flint Hill School, Oakton, VA. Also assisting were local groups from Brandywine’s Lighthouse Program, First Presbyterian Church of Bakersville, Alliance Church of Seaford, Cape Business, R Home Reality, Lighthouse, Georgetown Presbyterian Church and Avenue United Methodist Church of Milford.

Financial contributions for the Willey home came from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh, Habitat for Humanity International’s Sustainable Building program, Discover Bank, Deutsche Bank, Longwood Foundation, Welfare Foundation, Marmot Foundation, local churches, businesses and individuals and Sussex County government.

Local contractors working on the Willey home made significant in-kind contributions to the completion of the home. They include: Axiom Engineering, Arland Edwards, Jimco Electric, Weber Well Drilling, Shone’s Lumber, Elvin Schrock & Son, Fehrenbach’s Flooring, Delmarva Insulation, Top Notch Heating & Air Conditioning, Gutters for Less, Poore’s Propane, Universal Forest Products, and Duke’s Lumber.

Habitat for Humanity seeks families who currently reside in substandard living conditions and works along side of them to build a simple, decent and affordable home with an

interest-free mortgage. Habitat provides the potential homeowner with training designed to make them successful homeowners.

Sussex County Habitat for Humanity is currently seeking business and faith-based groups to volunteer, Wednesday through Saturday, on worksites in the County. To volunteer, call Beth Fitton at 302-855-1153.
