There are no walls quite yet at their future Sturgeon Bay home, by the Purdy family already has its paint colors picked out. Door County Habitat for Humanity’s 41st partner family had been rejected in previous years due to not making the financial requirements for the home. Volunteers are currently building the largest home in the organization’s history so that the family’s five kids can have rooms to call their own. Thanks to helping mow yards and volunteering at the ReStore, Jacob Purdy appreciates getting a “hand up” and not a handout.
The Purdy family hopes to move into their new home at the end of November.
