Groups tout work at Bellefonte chamber meeting

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Centre County is setting its sights on four housing projects this year, three in Patton Township and one in the Bald Eagle area.

Executive Director Jill Redman said that since its inception in the mid-1980s, the branch has built and renovated 60 homes in Centre, Clearfield and Clinton counties.

And the organization is always looking for more volunteers.

Redman was one of four speakers Wednesday afternoon at the Bellefonte Intervalley Chamber of Commerce luncheon at the Gamble Mill.

The luncheon was held to educate its members and other guests on local organizations that included the Bellefonte Historical and Cultural Association, Kiwanis Club of Bellefonte and Historic Bellefonte Inc.

Chamber Executive Director Gary Hoover said the meeting was a follow-up to its annual volunteer fair in March, which helps nonprofits recruit volunteers.

Chamber luncheons are held every other month. On the off months, an “after hours” event is held that allows members to network “casually,” Hoover said.

The chamber meets at 7:30 a.m. the first Wednesday of each month at the train station on West High Street in Bellefonte.
