Building group to break ground

NEW HAVEN — Sleeping Giant Build, a member organization of Habitat for Humanity of Greater New Haven, will break ground for its first sponsored house at 2 p.m. Sunday at Hallock St.
Organizer Don Deloge said build members will be joined at the ceremony by their partners, the William Morales family, who are the prospective homeowners, and representatives from Habitat for Humanity, to mark the beginning of construction.
"The construction of this house is the result of the cooperation of several organizations and individuals from Hamden, North Haven and New Haven, who are dedicated to providing affordable housing and building community," said Deloge, of North Haven.
Sleeping Giant Build was formed to coordinate fundraising, material donations and the volunteer labor needed for construction of a new house. The group continues to seek donations from the community to reach its $50,000 goal. Donations can be made to: Habitat for Humanity of Greater New Haven, Sleeping Giant Build, 37 Union St., New Haven 06511.
The premier sponsors are A-1 Toyota of New Haven, Spring Glen Church in Hamden, Church of the Redeemer in New Haven, St. John’s Episcopal Church of North Haven, Connecticut Gastroenterology Consultants of New Haven, St. Rita Church of Hamden, North Haven Congregational Church, Mount Carmel Congregational Church of Hamden, the Unitarian Society of New Haven and United Illuminating Co.
According to Deloge, students from Ridge Road School in North Haven and the Jared Andrews Studio in North Haven also contributed. The National Honor Society at North Haven High School and the Habitat for Humanity Club at Hamden High School will also be doing fundraising and providing work site volunteers, Deloge said.
