Brechbill & Helman sent crews to frame Habitat house on Warm Spring Rd

Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County is pleased to announce that Brechbill & Helman Construction Company fast-forwarded a new construction project taking place on Warm Spring Road in Chambersburg.  The local builder offered crews, in successive days, to  get the home dried in by raising walls and setting trusses before the arrival of winter weather and the new year.

Mark D. Story, Community Engagement Director with Habitat notes, “We don’t often have professional builders donate such a significant amount of time at our projects. This was a great blessing and boost to us and is another example of how generous our Franklin County community truly is. The work completed by Brechbill & Helman will now permit us to build throughout the winter months.

We are grateful.” Barbra Runyon, Brechbill & Helman CFO said, “Brechbill & Helman Construction Company has a long-standing loyal relationship with Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County; their mission speaks to the supporting role our company strives to pursue in the communities we serve.

We are so honored to be able to help support their mission with over 335 hours of manpower during this holiday season. Looking forward to sharing the joy of the finished project with this outstanding organization!”
