Habitat for Humanity
We have several projects that we work on throughout the year. This is a great hands on ministry and all skill levels are welcome.

OUR LATEST PROJECT: On Saturday, February 2nd, Annunciation began work on our newest Habitat for Humanity project, a home for the McCray Family. Click here for a bio on the McCray Family We are building the home in partnership with St. Mary Magdalene Parish and Chase Bank. Work will be going on for the next three months. Volunteers are needed for the following:
- Saturdays (for the next three months) from 8am to 2pm. 10 volunteers are needed each Saturday. No experience is necessary but volunteers must be 16 years of age or older.
- Weekdays from 8am to noon. If you can volunteer any days during the week please consider helping out. Work will be going on at the site every day except Sunday so any weekdays you can help out is greatly appreciated.
- Lunch providers – Each Saturday we provide lunch for approximately 25 people. Volunteers are needed to prepare or buy lunch and bring it out to the site for the volunteers. Nothing fancy is needed we have had peanut butter sandwiches, chili, sloppy joes as well as pizza. Please advise if you can help with providing lunch one Saturday in the next three months.
Parish ministries can also volunteer as a group and we will schedule your group to work together (or provide lunch).
If you can volunteer for any of the above please contact Marty O’Donnell at MartyOD54@cfl.rr.com or call 321-277-7215 for more information.

OUR AUGUST 2012 Project:
Over three weekends in August, Annunciation Habitat for Humanity Ministry volunteers worked on the exterior priming and painting of the Blue home in Seminole County. During the dedication on August 25th, Ms. Blue gave a heartfelt thank you to all the volunteers from Annunciation. Ms. Blue spoke about leaving a substandard and crime ridden apartment area and how through Habitat she and her husband were able to afford a home for their six children. Habitat for Humanity proves affordable housing for “partners” who put sweat equity into owning the home. Each home has a 20 year mortgage and “partners” take home ownership classes which Ms. Blue said taught her and her husband finance and tips on how to maintain a home. Special thanks to all of the new Habitat volunteers that signed up during the Stewardship Drive who came out and experienced Habitat for the first time.
