GROUND TO BE BROKEN TODAY ON HABITAT HOUSE

Old Dominion University students, staff and faculty will be on hand today when ground is broken on a Habitat for Humanity house at 509 W. 29th St. in Norfolk.

The event is scheduled for 12:45 p.m. at the site. The Old Dominion group will help build the house, as well as provide organization and leadership on the project. The new house will be the home of Bobby and Sheila Williams and their children.

Wachovia Bank, involved with other local Habitat projects, will donate $50,000 to Old Dominion to build the house, as well as provide construction crews.

The Williams family could be in their new home by Christmas.
