HENRYVILLE, IN – Devastating tornadoes ripped through Henryville, Indiana on March 2 of this year. Seven months later Habitat for Humanity of Indiana is partnering with the Henryville community and others to build ten homes for ten families whose homes were destroyed by the tornadoes. Habitat for Humanity of Elkhart County decided a few months ago to be involved in this ambitious undertaking and took a team of 11 skilled workers for the Blitz Build week of October 8-12.
This team was headed by Aaron Lehman, construction manager for Habitat for Humanity of Elkhart County, and Duffy Sherman, construction supervisor for Habitat for Humanity of Elkhart County. When the team arrived in Henryville they met the Nasby family, whose home was destroyed by the water damage, wind and hail earlier this year. Fox 59 from Indianapolis interviewed the Nasby family about this experience and the outpouring love and support from people they didn’t know before this week. Check it out below.
