Gaithersburg, MD (March 16, 2011) – On Saturday March 26th Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County, MD (HFH-MC) will celebrate two home dedications for local families. This is an opportunity to welcome our partner families into their new homes and wish them luck.

What: Habitat Home Dedication Ceremony
When: Saturday, March 26th 2:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
Where: 2:00 pm 18600 Cross Country Lane, Gaithersburg, MD 20879

A home dedication is a celebration that brings together community members, homeowners, volunteers, supporters, staff, neighbors and friends. “A home dedication is where the magic happens,” says John Paukstis, HFH-MC Executive Director. “Dedications are an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of the homebuyer, the volunteers, the staff—everyone who helped build it! Our construction crew did an amazing renovation which will keep energy consumption at a minimum for the new homebuyers.”

Environmentally friendly UltraTouch™Denim Insulation, made from old blue jeans donated by ReStore customers and volunteers, insulated parts of the houses. In addition to the insulation, other green features include energy star appliances, advanced air sealing techniques, high efficiency windows, and low, to no, VOC paint. These features keep the home comfortable and affordable over the long-term.

Incorporated in 1982, HFH-MC has served 66 families through home building, renovation and weatherization.

This event is free and open to the media and the public. For more information or directions, please call 301‐990‐0014 x15.
