YAKIMA, Wash. - For the first time Habitat for Humanity and students from Perry Technical Institute will be building a house for a family in Yakima.
During today’s groundbreaking ceremony the family was able to meet the people that will be building the house.
Students enrolled in the Construction, Electrical Technology and Heating, Ventilation, Air Condition and Refrigeration programs will be working on the house.
Executive Director for Habitat for Humanity Isabel Garcia said there was a long process before they were able to choose a family.
“One of our requirements is that they complete 500 hours of sweat equity,” said Garcia.
This is the 181st house Habitat for Humanity is building.
