The first house in Habitat for Humanity’s new Bryan subdivision will get underway this Saturday, Oct. 6. The new subdivision – known as Faith – will eventually house 24 new, energy-efficient homes and help renew the community on East Martin Luther King Street. Habitat will kick off the build with a short ceremony at 8:00 a.m. to bless the home and the future homeowner, Nikki Anderson, and her three children. All are welcome to attend. Right after the ceremony, volunteers and staff will start to build the house and raise the walls. The morning volunteers are former Texas A&M students now employed in Houston with Oxy, an oil and gas company. Kyle Richter, one of those Oxy employees, explained why they are coming all the way from Houston to volunteer. “We hope to build a stronger relationship with current students on campus as a way to show them why Oxy is a great company to work for. Everyone comes away with a good experience because Habitat for Humanity is such a noble cause, and the fruits of volunteering are immediately seen as the house gets built for a deserving family.” In the afternoon, student volunteers from Aggie Habitat will finish raising the walls and trusses. Two more houses are scheduled to begin in the Faith Subdivision on Oct. 27.
