A Special Message from Gulf War Veteran Floyd Keck

My name is Floyd and I am a disabled Gulf War Veteran. I served eight years in the United States Military until I was medically discharged. A year-and-a-half ago, my spouse and I separated and her house was being foreclosed. I had nowhere to go. WSOS helped me find a rental property in Tiffin,where I could be closer to my father. My father is my transportation for all of my needs. WSOS then introduced me to Seneca County Habitat for Humanity. After applying, I was so excited to find out I was accepted into the program. Now I am just waiting for the home to be finished at 272 Third Ave., Tiffin. The foundation and decking of my home were started in August. During the last two weeks in October the walls and roof trusses went up. Now the shingles and blue board are up, and windows and doors are installed. Future construction had to be put on hold until Spring. I cannot believe that I will actually have a home sometime in 2017. Everyone needs a place to call home. Thank you Seneca Habitat for Humanity for your help.

Floyd Keck

Floyd is so excited for this home ownership opportunity. By helping families build or improve a place they can call home, we help them achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.

In the past 30 years Seneca Habitat for Humanity has built over 39 homes. We provided decent, affordable homes for many families here in our community. Can you help us build more houses such as Floyd’s? It is people like you that truly make the world a better place to live. Everyone needs a place to call home.

Here are how your donations could help Floyd or another family. $17 to buy an interior door knob, $40 for a box of drywall screws, $50 to buy door trim for bedrooms, $100 to buy a bedroom window, $500 will buy vinyl flooring for the kitchen and bathroom. These are just some of the examples. Any amount/contribution is most welcome and appreciated so we can continue to help people like Floyd.

Only by working together can we make a difference. This holiday season, please help Seneca Habitat for Humanity build homes for those less fortunate than you. Please use the enclosed envelope to send your tax‐deductible gift.

God bless you and yours this holiday season.

Sincerely,
Carol Dell
Executive Director
