Power company gives to Habitat for HumanitySep 29, 2016 From staff and wire reports
Riverton Habitat for Humanity has received a check from Rocky Mountain Power Foundation.
This is the third year Rocky Mountain Power has supported the Habitat effort in Fremont County. The $2500 donation will go directly to the purchase of building materials for the new home construction which began with the onset of school.
Rocky Mountain Power's Leslie Blythe recently visited Habitat for Humanity in Riverton. Habitat representatives explained the partnership they share with the Riverton High School Geometry in Construction program and how effective the program has been.
The new build, which started the second week of school, represents the third of four houses scheduled to be built as a result of the partnership.
In the fall of 2013, Habitat entered into a partnership with the Riverton High School, Geometry in Construction program.
Providing both core and elective credits for students, the program divides the student's time between in-class geometry learning and hands-on practical application of the learned principles through construction. Students in the GIC program are eligible for concurrent college credits through CWC.
Habitat home owners pay a monthly mortgage just like other home owners. These funds go to support the continued efforts of Habitat here in Fremont County. Habitat homes are built with funds generated from grants, donations and fund raisers.
