MASON CITY – Two sheds were built Saturday by women who volunteered for Habitat for Humanity. Both were going to needy families.
“We had about thirty women working here today between the two shifts,” said Melissa Schoneberg, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity. “The two sheds go to Habitat Partner families, the ones getting the houses. One will go to Garner and the other to North Pennsylvania Avenue, here in Mason City.”
The mini construction projects took place at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, located at 517 1st St NW.
Chuck Myhre, Construction Supervisor, was overlooking the building of both the sheds, “The women are doing very good. They’re making them sturdy as can be and the sheds will be done on time. The people will be getting the sheds because the houses are affordable house, a little small, so these will give them some extra storage.”
Jenny Wumkes, of Garner, was there helping build her shed, “It feels good to help and I know that it’s built well because I helped build it,” said Jenny. Jenny’s husband, Shaun, was there too, helping with the paint.
