Habitat breaks ground on Wittenmyer's dream,
7/14 by Tim Kowols, Door County Daily News
Hiding behind enormous piles of rocks in Baileys Harbor, you will find a dream years in the making. Door County Habitat for Humanity and the Wittenmyer family officially broke ground on the organization's 47th home Thursday afternoon. The Wittenmyers wanted to build on their land years ago, but a terminal breast cancer diagnosis for Chrystal Chartier-Wittenmyer changed those plans. Thanks to the work of Door County Habitat for Humanity and other charitable endeavors, the home will become a reality later this fall. Chrystal is thrilled that it is all finally happening, even if she may not be around to see it.
New Door County Habitat for Humanity President Carrie Becker says working with families like Wittenmyers has been one of her favorite aspects during her short tenure so far.
Door County Habitat for Humanity is building this home while working on a second home in Sturgeon Bay. The organization invites you to swing a hammer on their build days on Tuesdays and Thursdays or contribute to their volunteers' meals and snacks.
