Homeownership is a big part of The American Dream. At Knoxville Habitat for Humanity, we are a proud partner with individuals and families who are living in substandard housing conditions who want a safe and comfortable place to call home.
Thanks to the following individuals for their generous gifts in memory of or in honor of a loved one from August 1 to August 31, 2011.
Most everyone agrees that one of the best parts of being a Habitat for Humanity volunteer is the delicious lunches that Covenant Partners, volunteers and other supporters provide on the build sites each Saturday.
Knoxville Habitat for Humanity is in need for volunteers or groups of volunteers to provide meals to our Saturday work groups. Lunches are typically served for 14-60 people and include anything from a simple sack lunch to a hot, catered meal.

I heard an interesting statistic not long ago: in the year 2000, there were 29 million people between the ages of 55 – 69; by the year 2015, there will be more than 61 million people who fall in that age range because the “baby boomer” generation (i.e., those born between 1946 and 1960) will comprise that entire sector of the population.
