Dear Editor:

Habitat for Humanity South Okanagan is looking for interested parties to join our board of directors and to head some of our committees.

This active organization needs people with strong business backgrounds. Experience in accounting, real estate, house construction, volunteer organization, safety training or fundraising would be an asset.

Our board meets on the second Monday of each month from 7 until 8:30 p.m. in the Clubroom at St. Saviour’s Church, 150 Orchard Ave. in Penticton.

This affiliate is in the process of building its third house and is currently raising funds to complete the Habitat home on Huth Avenue in Penticton.

We will announce our annual general meeting in March soon and would like to have contacted and interviewed potential board members and committee heads before our AGM. If you have an interest in working with this volunteer affiliate whose mission is to build simple, decent, affordable housing for local families, please contact Lynn Popoff at 778-476-0609 or Merle Kindred at 778 476 1319 or e-mail info@habitatsouthokanagan.ca
