Letter: Volunteers make Habitat model work

Residents of River Valley Ranch contributed 23 percent of the total volunteer labor man hours utilized in completing the recently dedicated Habitat for Humanity/Roaring Fork Valley home built in Keator Grove/Carbondale for the Lavender family.

Members of the Carbondale Rotary Club stepped up contributing another 7 percent of the total.

The market value of the total volunteer hours contributed to the Lavender home approximates $100,000.

Those of us who participated are proud to have made a difference in lending a hand up. Without volunteers, the Habitat model doesn’t work and the simple, decent, affordable homes so needed in this valley and elsewhere around the world don’t get built.

Jim Noyes

volunteer president, River Valley Ranch Homeowners Association
