Habitat for Humanity requests more volunteers for housing project




BIG SKY – Habitat for Humanity, along with the Rotary Club of Big Sky, have requested more volunteer help with their project building affordable housing on Big Sky school district property before winter weather sets in for good.

Jill Ellwood, volunteer coordinator for Habitat for Humanity of Gallatin Valley, noted that finishing the final wall on one of the triplexes would allow roof and interior work to proceed throughout the winter months.

“If the roof can go on before the snow flies, interior work can keep going all winter long at a more relaxed pace,” said Mel Crichton, a member of the Rotary Club who worked on the project extensively over the summer.

“No special skills are needed, but there will be work on stepladders with one or two people working below getting materials for the ladder workers. A crew of four or five can make a big dent in the work that needs to be done. If you can do only part of a day, that’s OK.”
