Taking care of friends

Good deeds were rewarded with good deeds Wednesday for local Habitat for Humanity volunteers.

Greeted by children pulling red wagons filled with Chewy Granola bars, bowls of watermelon wedges and chocolate chip cookies, workers at the North Church Street Housing project were treated to a picnic lunch catered by students in the Hero Quest Vacation Bible School from United Methodist Church of Grass Valley.

“It feels good to help the workers and to know that I am contributing to a good cause,” 12-year old Haley Kinney said.

Into its third month of construction, the North Church Street project is the latest housing development by the international nonprofit Christian organization’s Nevada County branch. The project aims to build four new houses and restore one existing home on a lot just off North Church Street and north of Richardson Street in downtown Grass Valley.

“I can’t believe these kids prepared all of this food,” said Susan Vlack, a volunteer builder from Grass Valley.
