Petrolia Build

July 17, 2020 – This morning we were excited to break ground on our 65th home. Kasra, Jamila and their children Yadkar, Nanda & Adam are eager to begin the adventure of owning their own home and cannot wait to see the finished house. Cool fact: For a $1 donation, the town of Petrolia donated the lot at 4158 James Street to Habitat for the build

June 11, 2020 – It was an exciting day as Habitat for Humanity Sarnia/Lambton held a groundbreaking ceremony in Kettle & Stony Point First Nations. As the shovels went into the ground, it marked the beginning of 4 Habitat homes on Eagle Drive that will start development next week, to be finished mid 2021.
