Dedicated volunteers from the Rotary Club of Livingston and Habitat for Humanity of Polk County gathered April 15 to landscape the yard of the 20th Habitat home in Polk County.
The Rotary Club of Livingston provided a generous grant with a matching grant from Rotary District 5910 to provide a rock driveway, construct flower beds, purchase plants, place a small walkway and lay pallets of grass to complete the new home. Volunteers from both organizations helped to make the funds go further by providing the labor for the flowerbeds, walkway and grass.
“On behalf of Habitat for Humanity of Polk County, we would like to thank Ray Gearing for advocating for Habitat during the grant application process, Rotary President Andrew Boyce and Rotary Grant Coordinator Will Watson for managing the project and all the hard-working volunteers who labored,” Amy Borel, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Polk County, said.
