The members of the Herkimer County Habitat for Humanity Board are deeply saddened at the sudden passing of their president, Christine Merganthaler.
Christine served as president for 12 years while directing the affiliate in the building of several Habitat homes in the Mohawk Valley. She was extremely dedicated to the mission and will be deeply missed as the Board works to start on its next house.
Our mission is to help families in need of housing to work in partnership with volunteers to build a simple, decent, affordable house. Once completed, the family purchases the house at no profit through an interest-free loan.
The Board invites anyone who has a heart for our missiong to join us or any of our several committees by calling 866-4909. The committees are; Family Selection, Family Support, Site Selection, Fund Raising, Church Relations, Building and Office Support.
