Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter partners with RoMac Distribution and The Villages Charter School to build a new home in Wildwood!
In partnership with RoMac Distribution, The Villages Charter School and Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter will kick-off construction of a second home to be built during the 2022-2023 school year.
For the first time since the Youth Construction Academy’s inception in 2018, students from The Villages Charter School will be building 2 homes during the school year, thanks to house sponsor, RoMac Distribution.
Danielle Stroud, CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter states, “It has been incredible to witness the growth of the Youth Construction Academy over the past 5 years. Local leaders and businesses have been true partners in their willingness to invest in the future of our community, through a show of support for new home construction projects, the positive outcomes for future homeowners, and of course, the lives of the students each year.”
“Don Magruder, CEO of RoMac Building Supply and RoMac Distribution has championed the Youth Construction Academy from the beginning and has been an influential figure for Leesburg High’s Construction Academy. It is because of RoMac Distribution’s financial generosity that The Villages Charter School students will be building a second home during the school year,” says Stroud.
Students will spend time during the school week on two active construction projects at the designated build sites, working side by side and gaining hands-on learning with Habitat’s construction staff and professional tradesmen. The Villages Charter students will be the first class to build two homes within the school year, furthering their construction knowledge and skill development.
