Habitat for Humanity of Archuleta County would like to give a great big thank you to everyone who volunteered with us this past Saturday, Sept. 11. The day was a huge success. Many hands came together to help build our 21st Habitat home and to help partner Jim McQuiggin acquire sweat equity hours from family and friends. We would also like to thank “The Crabbies” for helping us landscape Habitat homeowner Cindy Lovato’s house. Thank you all for giving your hearts and hands to this community!
