Meet the Browns — in Habitat for Humanity home

Rutherford County Habitat for Humanity dedicated a new home in Hopeview Estates recently.

 The Habitat for Humanity community, located in Spindale, is where Chassidy Brown and her three children now call home.

 This house was made possible by the Timken Foundation of Canton, Ohio and is therefore called the Timken House.  

Sixty-five people attended the dedication including Mike Martin, Timken Company’s Human Resource Manager, who was on hand to give the keys to the Brown family.  

Habitat is grateful for the support of the Timken Foundation and of Mike Martin from the Timken plant, located off U.S. 221.

For years, Martin has been a liaison between Habitat and the Timken Foundation and has always been a reliable source and a tremendous help to Habitat, said Habitat officials.

The Timken House is the 68th Habitat house in Rutherford County and was built by volunteers.

 Volunteers are always needed and construction experience is not necessary.

 Anyone interested in volunteering with Habitat in an effort to make a difference should call, Sheila Cain at 245-0716 or e-mail
