West Tuality Habitat for Humanity hosted it’s 1st Dream Builders Breakfast on October 1, 2018 at Prime Time Restaurant in Forest Grove, Oregon. The event in its first year, brought together community members and sponsors to raise funds and awareness for West Tuality Habitat’s home building program in the Forest Grove area. The event was sponsored by Heritage Bank.
Keynote speaker Clive Rainey, who is widely known and acknowledged as Habitat for Humanity’s first volunteer brought a message of community and faith to the group as he related his over 40 years of volunteering with Habitat for Humanity in the United States and in many international locations. Clive’s message was one of helping others achieve safe and affordable housing, and the role that all volunteers and people can play in that process.
Master of Ceremonies Rudy Tinoco introduced Sonja Katura, who is one of West Tuality Habitat’s current partner families, and she related the positive impact that being a partner family has had on her and her son, as they are currently working on her home in the new Kidd Court subdivision located on 22nd Place in Forest Grove. Minda VanDomlen also offered her experiences as a ReStore employee, and her recent Habitat home presentation, the last house built in the Cooper Corner project on 19th Avenue in Forest Grove.
Funds raised at this breakfast event will go towards the current home building project. Donations can also be made at the West Tuality Habitat website at www.westtualityhabitat.org. You can also follow the activities of West Tuality at the Facebook page, West Tuality Habitat for Humanity.
