Out of state youth group volunteered with local Habitat for Humanity

Last week a youth group from the Presbyterian Church in Pueblo, Colo. came to Utah to help the Habitat for Humanity of Utah County with its housing projects. The group of 11, ages 14 – 18, and their leaders helped do landscaping and fencing at the Habitat for Humanity of Utah County’s Brimhall Estates project at 558 E. 300 S. in Provo.

“The Brimhall Estate project includes two new homes and the renovation or one existing home on the property,” said Kena Jo Mathews, executive director of the Habitat for Humanity of Utah County.

The group stayed at the Provo Seventh Day Adventist Community Center and was fed by St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, Provo Community Church, the Utah Valley Handbell Ringers, and the BYU Habitat Chapter.

“It was good to see different groups coming together to serve the community,” said Mathews, “Not just Mormons serving Mormons or Catholics serving Catholics.”
