SENH Habitat's 4th annual 'Rotarians Raise the Roof'
On Friday, November 11th, at 9 a.m., Southeast New Hampshire Habitat for Humanity (SENH Habitat) will kick off the 4th Annual “Rotarians Raise the Roof” build in celebration of Veterans Day. SENH Habitat is excited to join forces with the Rotary Club of Portsmouth and Team Rubicon on this NH Veteran family build.
The Rotary Club of Portsmouth’s William Cash Fund generously provided $5,000 in grant funding to purchase building materials for this project in addition to volunteering on Veterans Day. “The William Cash Committee is pleased to once again contribute to the Veterans Build, financially and with this hands-on project,” shared Barbara Miller, Committee Chair.
SENH Habitat officially broke ground in August on this property donated by Candid Arcidy at 35 Richards Way. The team has been working hard on this veteran build alongside the family, volunteers, corporate sponsors, and supporters alike. We are grateful to Rotary, Team Rubicon, Timberland, Norm Vetter Foundations, T.W. Excavating, Northwestern Mutual, Market Square Architects and the University of New Hampshire in addition to so many others.

Marcie Bergan, Executive Director of SENH Habitat, said “This will be an astounding day of fellowship and so many hands working together to help a fellow veteran realize his dream of homeownership for his family, while honoring US veterans and victims from all wars.”
