Habitat’s “A Brush with Kindness” program is undertaking a project 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at 711 E. Garfield St., Ottawa. Organizers plan to build a handicap-accessible ramp and deck for Terrie Burnham at the home. The Habitat sub-program helps home owners with specific exterior projects on their homes.

“We hope [to get the project done Saturday] right now,” Kelly Moore, office manager with Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County, said. “We need some certain skilled labor to do that.”

A Brush with Kindness is looking for those who have helped build a deck before, carpenters with basic do-it-yourself skills to assist building the ramp and deck, volunteers for general labor and clean-up and organization or individuals to provide or sponsor lunch.

For more information about the project and how to volunteer, call the Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County office at (785) 242-2600 or e-mail hfhofc@sbcglobal.net
