Habitat home arrives in Boothbay Harbor

Thu, 01/09/2020 - 4:00pm

The Habitat for Humanity/7 Rivers Maine home for Jake Hodgdon, Shelby Pinkham and their son arrived on site at 35 Campbell St., Boothbay Harbor on Thursday, Jan. 9.

A massive crane and moving trucks brought the two-piece modular home in the morning and workers were expected to have the two pieces together by the end of the day, said Kathy Smith, director of Development and Communications. Smith was on-site with Habitat director Mike Connelly.

According to the press release submitted in July when Habitat broke ground on the property, “Habitat homes are made possible by engaging local partners in a true community effort. Habitat is grateful for the warm welcome and generous offers of support being received from so many individuals, businesses and organizations wanting to help. Early supporters include the town of Boothbay Harbor and the select board who donated the land to Habitat, Boothbay Region Community Resource Council, local contractors and businesses, our interfaith partners, and area Rotary clubs.”

To learn more about volunteering or offering other support, please call Smith at 207-504-9334.
