DES MOINES, Iowa: As of Saturday September 26th Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity will begin doing projects in Dallas County.

The first project involves fixing 3 homes in Perry.  Around 50 volunteers are needed.

“We’re gonna be doing siding painting, working on soffits, and making those houses look better, ” SAID Lance Henning, President of Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity.  “We’ll be able to help out the community, and help the people who are living in those homes.”

Greater Des Moines Habitat will be looking for projects also in Adel, and other parts of the county.

“We hope this is just the start in Dallas County, we’re intending to serve the entire county, so we’re looking for projects in Adel,” said Henning. “We hope to be able to do home ownership, and homeowner occupies repair in Dallas County.”

Also Greater Des Moines Habitat is expanding in Urbandale, with the opening of a second ReStore.  The non-profit store takes donations of surplus construction material, and sells it to people . The new store is located at 4033 NW Urbandale Drive, will be remodeled before opening in 2016.

People wishing to volunteer in Perry Saturday  may call: 515-238-5785, Dallas County Habitat.
