NOAH buys vacant home in Galion
By Matt Echelberry
Editor’s note: This is a follow up to a story in last Saturday’s Inquirer, “NOAH takes on another project.”
The NOAH Project bought a vacant home from Galion Building & Loan Bank on Nov. 16 using private donation money. The purchase is part of the organization’s Community Action Rehabilitation Efforts to remodel some of the vacant homes in Galion and surrounding communities.
Su Rowles, Barbara Sullinger and Bruce Angell from NOAH were at the bank that day to file the necessary paperwork.
Brad Gibson, general contractor of IR Concepts, Inc. of Galion, was there as well. His company will be doing the remodeling work for that property, both on the interior and exterior of the home.
Work began the following week. Those interested in helping with the remodeling must have experience in a relevant area, but others are encouraged to do yard cleanup, plant flowers, etc. The NOAH representatives do not know how many homes they will be able to remodel, but they hope this is the first of many.
NOAH Project is the only non-profit, community development housing organization in Crawford County that is certified by the state. To make a donation to the organization, send to 1000 Dove Lane, Crestline, Ohio 44827.
