Group to Build Homes in Nepal

November 24, 2000|MARGARET TALEV

A local group of Habitat for Humanity volunteers is planning to leave for Nepal late next month to help build a 100-home project.

Maya Hamilton, 38, and Ben Powell, 32, Web site designers based in Ventura, are among a group of 20 that will make the trip. The trip will be led by Cynthia Kersey, an Agoura Hills-based motivational author and speaker who is active with the nonprofit group.

Hamilton and Powell have launched a doughnut fund-raiser to help collect the $7,000 needed to cover travel expenses and a project donation.

Hamilton said any money raised above that goal will be donated to the Habitat for Humanity subdivision being built in Piru. For more information, visit the fund-raiser's Web site at www.donuts4homes.org.
