                                                   Building on Faith 2013
                                         By: Jim Mummert, BOF Fundraising Committee Co-Chair

                          Building on Faith (BOF) Blitz Week begins on Tuesday, June 18 for the duplex unit
                          at 403 and 405 S. Albemarle St. on the east side of the City of York. Such a week
                          involves two shifts of volunteers led by volunteer foremen and Habitat Staff.
                         A new and exciting dimension for this project is the erecting of graffiti boards around
                         the structure and a picture-taking event on Saturday, June 22 at 8:00am. These             BOF families break ground with St. Mark’s
                         positive-themed works of art were created by youth throughout the county at three
locations last summer. In combination with the graffiti exhibit, there will be a brief ceremony of prayer and recognition of State Farm Insurance (a
major project sponsor) which will kick off the final day of Blitz Week. .
A new registration procedure for construction volunteers will allow easy access to workday availabilities. After Blitz Week, BOF volunteers will work
every Wednesday and every other Saturday in order to have the homes completed in time for the two families to celebrate Thanksgiving in their new
homes. For more information regarding construction registration, contact Beth Fives (600-2326 or bafives@yahoo.com)
The overall project goal is to raise $180,000 in cash and in-kind contributions. Thanks to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church’s tremendous generosity in the
sponsorship of one home and a matching gift of $25,000 for the other home, the fundraising challenge has been greatly assisted. However, addition-
al funds are needed to complete the two four-bedroom homes. The hope is that congregations from throughout York County will unite in this calling
to help God’s people in need and join in support of the project through special offerings, budget contributions and
unique fundraisers. In addition, several countywide fundraisers to support the costs of the build are planned. With
the wide array of planned events, there promises to be something for everyone so that all can play a role in helping
these families realize their homeownership dream!
The time to put faith in action is now! Rally your congregation around the 2013 Building on Faith project today!
There is no better way to unite all members of your faith community than to work together to provide a forever home
for two wonderful families!

                                                     Women Build Needs A Home
York Habitat is disappointed to announce that our Women Build 2013 project has hit a serious roadblock. After overwhelming opposition voiced by
the local residents of Sherwood Forrest at the YNS Borough Council meeting, YHFH has made a most difficult decision to secure another property for
the Hanline’s home where this most-deserving family will be embraced by the community rather than placing them in an unwelcoming environment.

This situation is devastating to all those involved from the Habitat organization including the hundreds of volunteers who have been working to make
this dream of homeownership a reality. But no one is affected more than Laurie Hanline who currently lives in a rental property that cannot be modi-
fied to accommodate the needs of her severely mentally and physically handicapped son, Allen. Laurie has been eagerly anticipating the August 4th
groundbreaking for her new home. Moving into her home is a dream come true in so many ways, but most
of all it was to be a miracle for her 13 year old son as it was to have given him the ability to maneuver from            Text 2 Build
room to room in his walker instead of having to crawl on the floor.

York Habitat is appealing to the community to rally around Laurie and her boys to help us keep her dream
of homeownership alive and on schedule!

At this point, York Habitat is hoping to have another building lot donated in the central to southern
area York County that will accommodate the specially designed, handicapped accessible home.
Another option would be to acquire a three bedroom rancher in the same areas of York County that
has public sewer and water and could be modified to meet the needs of the family. A donation of an ex-

                                 Laurie Hanline, the future homeowner of the Women Build 2013, exemplifies the spirit of Habitat in everything
                                 that she does. Currently she is attending school full time at York College, where she is studying Biology. She

The RLASD plans to find a way to get all students involved with this community-uniting build from the
initial house plan design to the landscaping design and everything in between.
“Our staff and students are proud of the Red Lion community and wanted another way to give back to a
community that has been so supportive of the district. Like Habitat, the Red Lion Area School District is
interested in teaching life-long skills and improving the lives of our students and community members,”
says Dr. Scott Deisley, superintendent of Red Lion Area School District.
The Schoolhouse Lane project is set to kick off with a wall raising event in May 2014 and will conclude
with the completion of the home by June 2015. Prior to that time fundraising efforts will begin, the plans
                                      will be drawn and the walls will be pre-assembled by RLASD
                                      students.

                                                 made the first donation to the project. Ms. Jill Crouse-Wolf, a

employees within the York, PA offices. Over the last few years this grassroots-organized team has been planning
and organizing various unique fund-raising efforts, with the final goal of raising enough to sponsor an entire York
Habitat for Humanity home. At this time, the committee has raised over $40,900. Some of the unique fund-raisers
include sub sales, handmade chocolate roses, an ice cream social, and Poker Walk. The team has success main-
ly selling to Johnson Controls' employees in the York offices, but also holds various fund-raisers with local busi-
nesses like Books A Million, Five Below, Yankee Candles, Cloisters, and Smittie’s Pretzels, just to name a few.
Looking towards the future, the Committee is already starting to plan its largest fund-raiser, The 4th Annual Golf
Tournament. The event is scheduled to be held Saturday, September 21, 2013 at Honey Run Golf Course. If
you are interested in golfing, sponsoring, donating, or overall helping out with the tournament, please contact
jill.h.woltkamp@jci.com. This tournament is a fun tradition that always includes a helicopter golf ball drop.
Aside from fund-raising, the committee also strives to support York Habitat for Humanity in other outlets too.
Currently Johnson Controls employees organizes build days every other month. These sessions are great op-
portunities for employees to work together as a team, but outside of the office in an unique format. If you are                        The infamous helicopter ball drop at

The committee is most excited that the Johnson Controls home build is scheduled to break ground in 2014. The YHFH Family Services Commit-
tee is beginning the search for the future JCI Build homeowner. Five years of employee driven fundraising will culminate in the celebration of the
building of the JCI home for this deserving family!
York Habitat is so very grateful for the extraordinary efforts of the JCI Partnership Committee! The employees have tirelessly been raising funds
for the past four years so that a family in need will have a safe, affordable home. Their dedication serves as a stellar example as to what employ-
ees can do when they unite to make a difference in their community!

                       Enrichment Classes Provide Continuing Resources For Families
Last newsletter we told Habitat supporters about our newly expanded Family Enrichment Program. We are happy to say that the program has
continued with both social and educational activities. Most recently, several Habitat families attended a Fitness & Nutrition Class at the Habitat
office. Habitat homeowner Carrie Korkie led the class. She explained to all that fancy, expensive exercise equipment is not necessary. You can
simply use gallon jugs of water & bags with soup cans as your exercise equipment.
On May 4th, Habitat families learned about “Gardening in Small Spaces”. Master Gardener and Habitat Homeowner, Michelle Miller led this
hands-on class where families were taught how to plant and grow vegetables and fruits in limited spaces using raised bed gardens. Thanks to
Linda Gilgore and donations from Meadow Creek Organics each family took home herbs & vegetable plants to begin their own gardens.
In August, Habitat families will once again gather for our annual Summer Picnic. Thanks to York Traditions Bank, and the Family Services
committee, families will be treated to games, crafts and summer fun. Families who have been homeowners for many years are able to unite with
those new to our program. What a great support system the Habitat families provide for each other!

                         York Habitat for Humanity extends its groovin’ gratitude to everyone in the com-
                         munity that made our fourth annual gala event, the Peace, Love & Home Gala, a
                         stellar success!
                         From the cool committee members and excellent event volunteers, to the super
                         sponsors and dynamite donors of awesome auction items, to the groovy guests,
                         this year’s event was mondo memorable!
Yorktowne Farms was again the venue for our annual gala, with its pristine landscaping, lush horse                      On the dance floor
pastures, and magnificently restored banquet barn. On Saturday, May 18 th, a retro 70’s theme was
the background for an evening of flashback festivities, which included a pinball machine tournament,
a “best 70’s outfit contest” judged by gala attendees, a photo station where guests could have their
picture taken as 70’s icons, silent and live auctions, and the funky music of Groove Jones.
Over $21,500 was raised to help us continue our mission of providing safe, decent, affordable hous-
ing for low-income homeowners, while improving our community!
For four remarkable women who helped with the festivities, this event was far more than a fundraiser.
All single mothers in the process of becoming Habitat Homeowners, Laurie, Rachelle, Kristi and
Ashley, had the opportunity to share this enjoyable evening with some of the generous folks who
helped make homeownership their reality. Years from now, as they are enjoying their homes or are
playing with their children in their backyards, they will think of you - the guests, volunteers, sponsors,              Paul G and buddies
and donors who participated in the Peace, Love & Home Gala - and smile knowing this event helped
make their dreams of home ownership come true.
Thank you again to everyone who was involved! We couldn’t have done it without you!

                       Women Build : Looking to secure a suitable location for ADA home for the Han-
                       line family. After the overwhelming opposition voiced by local residents of Sher-
   321 East Poplar St. wood Forrest at the YNS Borough Council meeting, York Habitat has made a
                       most difficult decision and faced the reality that the best course of action is to se-               Habitat’s “Angels”
cure another property for the Hanline’s home where this most-deserving family will be embraced by the
community rather than placing them in such an unwelcoming environment.

Hard to believe, but all of this will be accomplished before the end of 2013! With three major builds planned for next year, we will have more on
our plate than ever before. York Habitat offers construction for the general public year-round, so it should be easy for everyone to find a time that
works to volunteer! Bring a friend or two or up to ten others and make a day of it. Just jump on VolunteerHub for a one time registration and sign
up for as many workdays as you want. Our construction staff looks forward to seeing you onsite!

How YOU Can Help
Consider joining our NRI committee. Committee members are needed to coordinate the logistics of the program and repairs.
Make a multiyear financial pledge that will help revitalize a neighborhood. Repairs for each home are anticipated to range from $1,500 - $5,000.
Help to solicit in-kind materials. The more materials that are donated; the lower the cost of the actual façade repair.
Volunteer to help at the NRI site. NRI volunteers can be as young as 14 and regular workdays for the NRI program can be scheduled online
through VolunteerHub.


                                 Volunteers of the Quarter
Volunteers of the Quarter - Ron and Joan Drayer
Ron and Joan Drayer have an amazing story. They are both actively involved in their church and in out-
reach through Grace Fellowship in Shrewsbury, Pa. As a hobby, Ron would buy, rehab and sell proper-
ties. Ron says that when he had trouble selling one property in York City, “God had other plans”. He says
that it was his wife’s idea to rent out their Shrewsbury home to their pastor and move into the house on W.
King St. in York City. One of their church’s ministries that they were involved in from the start was “Adopt-A-
Block”. The church adopted blocks in Shrewsbury, Glen Rock, and then in the Salem Square area of York           Bob Gifford & Ron Drayer lending a hand to
City. The purpose of the ministry is to bring a consistent presence of service and friendship to the area. In            Salem Square neighbors
their York City neighborhood, Ron and Joan go door to door asking their neighbors if they need anything.
Ron says that’s anything from clothing and diapers to household repairs. In working with other volunteers from the Salem Square neighbor-
hood and Grace Fellowship church, Ron has led the way in meeting many needs of those less fortunate in his surrounding neighborhood.

Through his contacts as a previous York Habitat Swingin’ Senior volunteer, Ron got involved in our Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative (NRI).
With Ron already being actively involved with the west end efforts, the NRI, program was a natural fit. Ron and his team of volunteers from
Grace Fellowship, Living Word Community Church and the Salem Square neighborhood work diligently on the prep work for each home
as part of the NRI movement while Joan assists with obtaining all of the necessary paperwork and explaining the program requirements to
participating homeowners. Once the site is ready for Habitat’s Façade Improvement Program, Ron is then one of the supervisors who lead
Habitat volunteers in completing the repairs. When asked about why he does what he does, Ron said, “I’ve done many things for myself over
the years, then I wanted to share myself with others. God was tugging at my heart and it’s all for His Glory.”

Many thanks to Ron and Joan for their outstanding commitment to serving their community and for their participation in the NRI program. It is
volunteers like Ron and Joan that drive our ministry and make it possible for lives to be changed!
