5 Days in 3 Minutes - Witness the Miracle on Chambers St....Roll It!

BY now you've heard about the miraculous Builders Blitz made possible by  Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh, Newburgh Community Land Bank, and the Builders Association of the Hudson Valley. Long story short nearly 100 local contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, donors and hundreds of individual volunteers supported building the two homes on Chambers Street. Volunteers from AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps also participated.

The Santiago family and the Cordero-Valencia family received keys to the homes on Saturday, June 9.

The dedication was tearful and joyous as drizzles of rain poured over a collective cross-section of a community audience bursting with gratitude for all that was accomplished.

Executive Director Cathy Collins was wonderful in sending us this multi-media masterpiece created by AmeriCorps Volunteer Jean-Bertrand Uwilingiyimana - 3:30 that sums up 5 days on Chambers St better than we ever could!
