SIDNEY — Habitat for Humanity of Miami and Shelby Counties started construction of a home in Sidney Sunday afternoon.
The four-bedroom house for homeowner Kelly Beemer’s family will take approximately three to five months to complete.
Emerson and Cargill employees, who are primary sponsors in the project, participated in the construction of the house located in the 500 block of Second Avenue.
"Emerson is proud to partner with Habitat for Humanity for this build in Shelby County. Our values of supporting our people and our local community are demonstrated through this partnership. We will provide funding, organize employee volunteers, and offer general support as needed. We are currently renovating and expanding our own facilities in Sidney, and we are excited to support this community project in parallel,” according to Habitat’s project manager Paul Hoying from Hoying & Hoying Builders.
"Cargill is pleased to be able to participate in this build for the Beemer family. We believe it's an honor to be able to help the Beemer's bring their new home to life. We look forward to getting started on their build,” said Mickey Hamer, Sidney Facility Leader at Cargill, Inc.
Beemer met Habitat’s criteria for homeownership including need, sweat equity and assumption of a 20-year, zero interest mortgage, according to a release from Habitat for Humanity.
