The Inspectors Have Arrived

February 6, 2019

In what has become an annual tradition, second-grade students from Jewish Academy of Orlando recently donned hard hats and grabbed clipboards for their “inspection” on our house in progress.
Our longtime president and (cofounder) Hal George—seen each Saturday morning “directing” construction traffic—has overseen the children’s once-overs for several years now. He led the second-graders through their paces at the build site, located at 815 W. Comstock Ave., as they learned real-world lessons on construction, economics, volunteerism and civic responsibility.
The students come out for altruistic reasons as well. They hold a fundraiser every year to benefit Habitat for Humanity, and this time presented Hal with a check for nearly $1,000. Truly an outstanding effort.
Habitat appreciates the hard work, dedication and selflessness these youngsters exhibit every time they visit. We are always humbled and delighted to host our annual “inspectors.” Plus it’s just so darn adorable to witness that we always look forward to hosting them.
Sincere thanks to the students, parents, administration and staff at Jewish Academy of Orlando from everyone at Habitat for Humanity of Winter–Maitland!

A Habitat-Trinity Prep Milestone

September 15, 2018

If you missed our latest groundbreaking, it was a special event for several reasons. First, we were able to announce our newest Habitat family during the groundbreaking. Also significantly, this is the 20th home sponsored by Trinity Preparatory School, during this their 50th anniversary. As Habitat Chairman Thaddeus Seymour noted, it is a community service mark “unmatched by any secondary school.”
Congratulations, Trinity Prep! And thank you for being such a valued partner with Habitat.
To quote Trinity Chaplain Rev. Richard Towers at the ceremony, we will build this house “with love, care and respect.”
