Brenda Gould, Ex. Dir. of Habitat for Humanity, Greater Lowell, overviewed the work of this local non-profit that serves 15 towns in North Middlesex County, recently helping 166 families through grass roots efforts to build affordable, energy efficient homes. Habitat families get a hand up, not a hand out, participating in the construction of the homes they will own. The Rotary Club of Concord looks forward to volunteering at the "build" when Habitat for Humanity renovates a house in Concord in the Spring of 2020. Shown here, Brenda introduces a student whose  life in a Habitat home gave her to access to a quality education.
