The Haleyville Rotary Thursday donated $5,000 to Habitat for Humanity of Marion County. This is to date the largest single source donation the group has received.
The group has built four homes in Hackleburg since the April, 2011, tornado outbreak and is currently working on its first home in Phil Campbell with plans for four more.
The Phil Campbell home is being built for James and Christina McCulloch and their three children and should be completed in early April. McCulloch's home was destroyed in the April 27, 2011, tornado. The organization received special permission from Habitat for Humanity International to build in Franklin County. There is no Habitat affiliate in Franklin County.
This year Habitat for Humanity affilitates in Alabama will complete their 2000th new home since the tornados. For more information on Habitat for Humanity, [CLICK HERE].
