This house will be home for Heather Russell and her two children.

Sargento partnered with Habitat Lakeside and donated funds along with hard working Sargento volunteer hands, including Louie Gentine himself, in building the home located at 510 McColm St.

“Thank you so much to Sargento, Habitat Lakeside, the Plymouth school district, and the Plymouth community. We could never thank you enough for how much you've helped us build this place we get to call home and where I can safely raise my two boys. It's just amazing and beautiful and we thank you so much,” said new homeowner Heather.

Festival Foods and More Frosting Please donated cakes and Texas Roadhouse (Sheboygan) donated pork sliders while many community members and friends decked out Heather’s new home with fresh planted flower pots, decorations, and gifts. Habitat board member Tom Warosh created a hand-turned wooden bowl as a gift for Heather; the bowl was made from the lumber used for her home. Fresh Snapped Photos and Board & Brush dedicated original artwork pieces, a bookcase loaded with books was set up by Altrusa of Sheboygan, and both an audible Bible and family Bible were presented to the family by Rev. Casey Sugden and the church congregation of Redeemer Lutheran Church.

“Of course we would never be able to do what we do without the vital support of our volunteer teams,” said Dawn Eggers, director-public relations for Habitat Lakeside, “Watching the Panther Construction students learn everything from laying the foundation of the home to raising the walls was phenomenal.”

Habitat Lakeside’s Executive Director Jon Hoffman stated, “We are so proud to partner with the IBEW Local 494 with not only all the electrical wiring on the homes, but also in job shadowing with the Plymouth High School students. Teaching the students a viable and marketable trade that they can take into their futures can give them a sustainable income and a sustainable income means we will have less Habitat homes to build.”

No construction skills are necessary to participate in building on Habitat projects. To volunteer or donate, call 920-458- 3399 ext. 303 or email loveinaction@habitatlakeside.com.
