Warren County Habitat for Humanity continues to make strides towards their Osage Street project.

Boyce resident and runner Michael Zawadzki took on the Boston Marathon yesterday as part of Habitat’s efforts to raise money for the project and brought in $2,500.00.

Michael had a blazing pace for the first half of the marathon with an hour and 52 minutes and finished in just over four hours and 20 minutes.

Warren County Habitat for Humanity also received a grant of over $235,000 to help accelerate their neighborhood revitalization project on Osage Street.

This grant was secured through the Susan Dewey Virginia Housing Grant and Warren County Habitat for Humanity was one of five affiliates to receive funding.

This will help with not just the construction but also to subsidize loan costs, enable deserving families to qualify for mortgages and secure their homes.
