Interfaith Habitat Works 2018; the Wrap-Up Party!

On May 31, 2018 CRIHI members gathered at Habitat for Humanity’s Carter Place build to celebrate the work Interfaith volunteers were able to accomplish this year.

Here are the rough numbers:

OVER 300 Volunteers; 48 lunches served!

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to do this work together!  Here are some of our celebratory faces from the Wrap Up Party:

Here are a few of the names and faces above:  We heard faith community representatives from Muslim, Jewish, Sai Baba Centre, Ismaili, Roman Catholic, Anglican, Christian Reformed, Quaker, and Anglican.

CRIHI was pleased to welcome five dignitaries to this event:
Dolores Peterson, Habitat for Humanity Board
City Councillor Mike Nickel, Millwoods
David Shepherd, MLA for Edmonton-Centre
Denise Woollard, MLA for Edmonton-Mill Creek
Hon. Richard Feehan, MLA for Edmonton-Rutherford and Minister of Indigenous Relations

Of special mention is CRIHI’s own Fraser Williamson, who we honoured for his tireless efforts the last seven years as coordinator for this Interfaith Habitat Works project.  Fraser, we cannot thank you enough for all your work to make this project so successful!
