At our Jan. 20 meeting Kim Trainor, Director of Development of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Lowell, presented an update regarding the progress on the renovation of the two-family home at 30 Main Street in West Concord. The Rotary Clubs of Concord and Bedford have held two “build days” at the house. The Rotary Club of Concord designated Habitat as the recipient of proceeds from its April 2020 Pops, unfortunately cancelled due to Covid. Despite Covid, Kim reported building has gone smoothly, with many community volunteers, including “sweat equity” put in by the families who will be moving into the home. Dedication is slanted for May. Due to the dramatic rise in building material costs, Habitat needs an additional $25,000 to complete the project. And, there is an opportunity for Habitat to build another home in West Concord, on Commonwealth Avenue, at an estimated cost of $200,000 to $250,000. Concord Rotarians are eager to help, and have again designated Habitat as recipient of their fundraising through this year’s Pops, scheduled for April 8. Spread the word! Be a sponsor. Help solve the housing crisis for underserved families in our area. And thanks Kim, for keeping us up to date.
