PEOGA, Ind. — After two fundraisers in the past few months, Brown County Habitat for Humanity is ready to raise the walls on this year’s partner family home.

On Tuesday, Oct. 6, workers will frame the walls on this three-bedroom house for Nathaniel and Rachelle Nash and their three children, Desirea, Jordan and Nate.

The plan is to have the family moved in by the end of November, so the Nashes’ home church, Church of the Lakes in Cordry-Sweetwater, plans to step in to provide labor and food for the volunteers, according to Rachelle Nash.

Sandie Jones, a Habitat board member, said the organization’s inaugural garage sale in August raised $4,891 and the Hike for Humanity on Sept. 26 brought in $6,400.

“It was a great event with 50 hikers participating,” Jones wrote in a message.

The money raised will fund the no-interest loan that the Nashes will pay back over time, according to Rachelle Nash.
