Schenectady Habitat for Humanity breaks ground on new homes

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Schenectady’s Habitat for Humanity broke ground on Thursday for the 52nd time in the Capital Region.

This newest build project takes place in the Mont Pleasant neighborhood where not one, but two homes will be built.

The project was made possible by a donation of $75,000 from the IUE Communications Workers of America, and a couple of very generous community members.

Maria Delmonaco and her husband, Walt, donated the land where the homes will be built.

“It’s the American dream and why not be a part of helping somebody achieve it and that was really our motive for donating,” said Maria Delmonaco.

Volunteers are hoping to get started on laying the foundations this weekend and hope to complete the homes by next fall.
