Despite a difficult year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Habitat for Humanity continues to move ahead with its latest build in Moose Jaw. 

The organization is currently building a duplex at 1015 Ominica Street East. 

The pandemic has limited the amount of fundraising that Habitat for Humanity has been able to do as well as limited the number of volunteers on site. On top of all that, they’ve also seen a rise in costs for building materials. 

“Despite some of these challenges, though, progress on the build itself is moving along, and we're also so thankful for their continuing support of the community,” said chapter lead Donna Watts. 

The provincial government announced that on July 11 all public health restrictions will be lifted and Habitat for Humanity is hoping that’ll mean more fundraising opportunities and more volunteers on site. 

Watts said she isn’t sure how quickly they’ll be able to get more volunteers on site as that’ll be up to the project supervisor and they want to keep safety first. 

“At this time, we're seeking community members who may be interested in joining our committee, and we have a focus on fundraising and, of course, we're also looking forward to being able to welcome some more volunteers back to the site,” Watts said. 

A number of information nights will be taking place with details to come.
