Thrivent and Mesabi Range College Building Homes and Hope in Gilbert
Johnson/Victor Family is Working Hard, Too!
NSLCHFH is so grateful for our ongoing partnerships both with Thrivent, the major funder for the Johnson/Victor home in Gilbert, and Mesabi Range College (MRC), whose carpentery class is busy finishing this home. Of course, the Johnson/Victor family has been doing a LOT of work as well, keeping the site clean and organized, painting walls and trim and doing anything else they are asked as they help build the affordable home they will buy.
As the students at MRC, under the direction of Leo Lucas, move toward the finishing touches on the Johnson/Victor home, they can also proudly look next door at our second Gilbert home. The Paternoster family is eager to start the work! Their home's major funder is also Thrivent, so that great partnership continues. Although MRC will not be as involved in this home, they are the reason the foundation, a critical component of the home due to its in-slab heat, is done and ready for framing.
We will be looking for help this summer! As we are able to gather safely together, consider helping us build or providing a lunch to our builders. Maybe better yet, gather again with that group of friends you have been Zooming with and have a great day of fun TOGETHER building a home while we strengthen our Iron Range!
