DEER PARK, Wash. – Donations make up 100 percent of Habitat for Humanity Spokane’s efforts.  The past two weeks, hundreds of volunteers have given their time, helping to finish six homes and start four new homes in Deer Park for Habitat for Humanity Spokane’s Blitz Build.

Volunteers save about 30 percent of the cost to build a home. That means the average $100,000 home built during Blitz Build would cost an extra $30,000.

Habitat for Humanity Spokane’s chief executive officer, Michone Preston, said many of the donations that Habitat receives are match grants that require volunteer hours, so the economic impact of the volunteers is virtually immeasurable.

The homes were set to be dedicated at a ceremony on-site in Deer Park at 12 p.m. Friday.
