22 Jan Habitat for Humanity in Johnson City looking for volunteers
The Habitat for Humanity Johnson City location is looking for volunteers. The pandemic caused a shortage of volunteers to help build homes for families in need.
Usually about eight Habitat Houses are built each year in the Tri-Cities. Since the pandemic began, only two have been built.
Habitat Humanity Manager, Wendy Mcilquham, says the program has been leaning on their own employees to meet its goals.
“We are just so limited,” she says. “We have a few staff and just a few core volunteers.”
With covid-19 vaccinations rolling out, employees and volunteers alike hope to get back on track with projects and goals.
