Thank You to Our Habitat for Humanity Volunteers

Released: 6/23/2022 6:00:00 AM

Thank you to our volunteers who turned out in 90+ temperatures to help build a Habitat for Humanity home in Niagara Falls. Talk about sweat equity!

Erie County Rehab C Manager Jamie Phelan (above, center) said the laying of the foundation was delayed, cancelling out the Kaleida Health Volunteer Days that had been scheduled in the much cooler months of April and May. The June 5 and 15 dates went ahead as scheduled, from 1 to 4 p.m., with just the basement foundation and walls in place. "Our hours consisted of moving the lumber from outside the foundation into the basement," said Jamie. "It was labor intensive, especially in the high heat and humidity, but it was worth it knowing that we were helping our community."

Also volunteering that day were Peyton Phelan (Jamie's daughter, at left) and Business Development and Marketing Director Fred Pordum (right).
