1000 homes – 3,500 men, women and children – 11 cities. What will YOU build?
Grand Canyon University basketball coach and former Phoenix Sun Dan Majerle recently helped unveil the 1,000th home built by Habitat for Humanity Central Arizona on Saturday, June 28 at the newly constructed home of the Olaguez family.
Majerle and members of the GCU basketball team helped break in a new basketball hoop with the family as well.
The 1,000th home belongs to Juan and Josefina Olaguez who worked alongside volunteers for the last 16 weeks, along with their two teenage sons, and their adult daughter and her three children.
They will be living in a Glendale neighborhood that contains 11 homes built by Habitat over the years.
To help celebrate the occasion, the first family to move into a Habitat home in El Mirage in 1987, were also on hand to share their own story.
Majerle and the Habitat organization are asking the public to assist as they set out to build the next 1,000 homes by donating to the organization. Information: www.habitatcaz.org
