Samford, Alagasco to Build Habitat for Humanity House

Posted on 2002-02-25 by William Nunnelley (205) 726-2800

Samford University and Alagasco will join hands this spring to build a Habitat for Humanity house in Irondale.

Samford students and employees of both institutions will work together to construct the dwelling during March and April. Groundbreaking for the home at 2023 Third Avenue South in Irondale will be Monday, March 4, at 11 a.m.

"The Habitat staff looks forward to partnering with Samford University and Alagasco, who share our vision of eliminating substandard housing," said Charles Moore, president and chief executive officer of Greater Birmingham Habitat for Humanity.

"Their commitment to improve the quality of life in this area is obvious through past partnerships with Habitat. Our mission is to provide safe, affordable housing to those in need and the upcoming Samford/Alagasco partnership is a perfect example of mission in action."

Samford students, faculty and staff provided volunteer funds and labor to build a Habitat house in Fairfield last school year. Alagasco also has been involved in supporting the Habitat program for 10 years.

This spring's Habitat project will provide housing for a family of five currently residing in Irondale.

Volunteers from the community interested in working on the Samford/Alagasco house should contact Jennifer Dunn at 726-2345 or E-mail habitat@samford.edu.
