Sonora Regional Medical Center builds with Habitat

IMG_6090-1 (2)On April 1, Habitat for Humanity of Tuolumne County (HFHTC) hosted nearly 50 volunteers from Sonora Regional Medical Center (SRMC) who came out to Parrotts Ferry Village to help build and to learn more about HFHTC.

In early 2016, Andrew Jahn, President of SRMC contacted Trinity Abila, Executive Director of HFHTC to present the idea of having a reserved day for SRMC employees to volunteer at the HFHTC build site located just outside of Columbia. These enthusiastic employees of SRMC are provided a day of volunteerism and team building to build homes for families in need. HFHTC  staff had a great time teaching SRMC staff more about Habitat for Humanity and training them in some new building skills.

“We are deeply grateful for the commitment of the leadership team from SRMC,” said Betsy Harden of HFHTC. “Our entire staff was excited to be involved. We all wanted to make sure each one of these volunteers walked away with a smile on their face and joy in their heart.”

SRMC President Andrew Jahn said, “This build day is providing an opportunity for our leadership team to give back to our community in a very tangible way.  As I work alongside this team, every day I see firsthand their skill to heal.  Today, what shines through is their spirit to care.”

Habitat teams up with Sierra Pacific Industries

SPI lumber PressThe 2013 Rim Fire was devastating to Tuolumne County. Thousands of people were evacuated. Businesses had to close down. Smoke hung in the air for months. By the time it was over, more than 400 square miles had burned and a total of eleven residences, three commercial buildings, and 98 outbuildings were destroyed in the fire.  Now, two and a half years later, Tuolumne County is still healing from the losses and looking forward to the day we can see the forest – and the community – renewed.

One step towards that renewal is symbolized by a partnership between Habitat for Humanity of Tuolumne County (HFHTC) and Sierra Pacific Industries (SPI). HFHTC has recently begun construction of new homes at Parrotts Ferry Village near Columbia – and SPI has donated the lumber to build two of them.  With operations in Chinese Camp and Sonora, SPI is a significant member of the Tuolumne County community and is a key part of the Rim Fire recovery efforts, providing numerous jobs as part of the salvage logging efforts. And now SPI is providing locally harvested and milled lumber to build Habitat homes that will be sold to Tuolumne County residents. With this donation, SPI joins the community of supporters who provide time, talent, and materials to build the homes HFHTC sells to low-income Tuolumne County residents. The partnership between HFHTC and SPI is a great example of what a group of citizens can accomplish when they support each other. Together we are building community by being community.
