Closing ceremony today for two-house blitz build in Rainelle, West Virginia

The Potomac Highlands Fuller Center for Housing will hold closing ceremonies for the end of the first of two blitz weeks this summer to help families in the community of Rainelle, West Virginia. Today is the one-year anniversary of that devastating natural disaster.

One house is being built in partnership with Travis Nutter and his children on 4th Street. Another house is being built in partnership with Robin Keaton and James Childers and their children on 3rd Street. Both families lost their homes and majority of their personal possessions in the flood. Both homes have been sponsored and are being constructed by the DreamBuilders of Maryland. There will be another two-house blitz later this summer.
