Neighborhood Policing!

Habitat hosted it's third Police Picnic of the summer this past week at Joaquin Park. Residents of Provo's Joaquin Neighborhood enjoyed a hot dog meal and got the opportunity to ask their local Community Police officer and other officers questions as part of this annual crime prevention activity. Special thanks to Celeste Kennard, Provo Community Policing, the Nielsen's, and Tom Parker to making this event possible.

Habitat brought its Provo Mobile Tool Library to the Dixon Day of Service on Saturday. Dixon Neighborhood Residents used tools and maintenance items from the free Library to help clean up properties around 400 N 900 West in Provo. The volunteers made a big difference!

Habitat played carnival games, handed out candy, and promoted our programs at a Summer Carnival at Franklin Park in Provo this past week. The Summer Carnival was sponsored by the South Franklin Community Center and Provo Parks and Rec and included games and prizes, inflatables, face-painting, snow cones, and photo opportunities with some Disney Characters. We were blessed to help build the South Franklin Community Center and loved the opportunity to be part of the Carnival.

Habitat partner mom, Lucy Sanabria, and her daughter met with the owners and other staff members of EDGEhomes on Wednesday to select her options for her upcoming Habitat home in Provo. After the owners and staff got to know Lucy a little bit better, Interior Designer, Kate Heath, helped Lucy and her daughter select some beautiful options for her new home. We appreciate EDGE's continued commitment to our families and our mission. This will be the third local home EDGE has blitzed with Habitat.

Pioneer Day Parade!

Habitat families and others spent their Pioneer Day holiday promoting Habitat and its programs at the Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Parade on Monday morning. Volunteers walked next to our "cool" red float and handed out taffy and flyers to parade attendees along the lengthy parade route. We love parade season! Next up is Payson's Onion Days Parade on Labor Day!
