HABITAT FOR HUMANITY BUILDING NEW HOME ON JUANITA DRIVE
TUSCALOOSA – Habitat for Humanity is laying the groundwork for its newest home, and it’s got the University of Alabama’s National Championship win to thank.
“Less than 18 hours after the team returned to Tuscaloosa,” said Ellen Potts, director of Habitat for Humanity, “Terry Saban contacted me about building a 16th habitat house for the 16th National Championship.”
Potts said the Sabans have gone above and beyond with their support for Tuscaloosa, and that with Nick’s Kids, they’ve been able to donate more than $4 million to causes around the area.
The new home is going up on Juanita Drive, where several other Habitat for Humanity houses have been built. But there’s still plenty more families to help, and houses to build.
Potts said Habitat builds houses six days a week year-round, so they’re always in need of more volunteers.
Not to mention, there are 18 more lots on Juanita Drive, but there’s only funding for two more houses right now.
