Commissioner Ellis Joins Volunteers at MLK Day of Service in Houston

Commissioner Ellis Joins Volunteers at MLK Day of Service in Houston

January 25, 2017

Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis and dozens of volunteers celebrated the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday Jan. 16 by cleaning the historic Evergreen Cemetery and helping Houston Habitat for Humanity build a home.

Bianca Saenz, an 18-year-old senior at the Houston Can Academy Hobby campus, was with about a dozen of her fellow students working on a wall.

“We feel great,” Saenz said. “We like coming out and doing our part to serve others. We actually have been planning to find something to do to pay tribute to Martin Luther King.”

Habitat for Humanity allows people to purchase homes in a unique partnership. If a potential buyer meets the criteria and is selected as a future homeowner, he/she will be required to complete 300 “sweat equity hours” that include participating in homeownership training classes as well as building your home and your neighbors’ homes.
