November 14, 2015Marshfield Area Habitat for Humanity proudly dedicated a new home at 1205 S. Maple Street in Marshfield today at 2:30 pm. This 2015 Marshfield Area Habitat build (our 17th new home), which began in July of this year, is now completed. We wish to thank all the local businesses (we were pleased that a number of new businesses participated), who provided donated or discounted labor/material, national companies and numerous volunteers who provided time, talents and various resources to help build this home. Without all of the support we received, we would not be able to build a home for a Partner Family at a reasonable cost they can afford.
