WCHFH receives gift of land in Linden

Front Royal, VA –Habitat for Humanity of Warren County is delighted to report that it has received a gift of two lots of land located in Skyland Estates.  The two lots, valued at $5000 each, came from Dr. and Mrs. Robert and Louise Tano, of Ellicott City, MD, and Mr. and Mrs. Perry and Fran Hudson of Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina.

The two former owners of the land contacted the Warren County Habitat office last month, and offered the two lots as a gift to the local affiliate.

After investigating and examining the lots, Warren County Habitat Board members determined that they would accept the lots with the intention of planning a Warren County Habitat building project in the future.

“This a truly remarkable gift, and we are extremely grateful to the Tanos and Hudsons for their generosity,” remarked Lee Smith Osina, Executive Director of the Warren County Habitat affiliate. “Any time we can begin one of our new construction projects without having to purchase the land to build on, we can greatly cut down the total cost and provide a new Habitat homeowner with their dream of a lifetime at a much lower cost,” she continued.   “We truly appreciate both the Tano’s and the Hudson’s most generous gift.”

Warren County Habitat has built 14 homes in Warren County since its inception in 1993.  Hensley indicated that he was unsure of when a new construction project might actually begin on the site.  He explained that several past construction projects had taken place in the Linden area, and he felt strongly that the much-appreciated gift increased the organization’s options when it comes to helping low-income folks become homeowners.  He concluded by saying that a new Habitat construction project could begin as early as the Fall of 2017.
