Harbor Habitat, Whirlpool Volunteers Work on Several Builds
By Tony Wittkowski
BENTON TOWNSHIP — Trianna Sims is rarely speechless, but Thursday wasn’t like most days for her.
Alongside her husband, Dontrell, the Sims were given a ceremonial hammer Thursday morning at the site of their future Benton Township house being built by them and Harbor Habitat of Humanity volunteers.
Dontrell explained how much a home meant for him and his family. The Sims have moved three times within the past year, while tending to a 2-year-old boy, with another child on the way.
Despite what they’ve endured, Dontrell said he doesn’t mind moving one more time if it means becoming a homeowner.
