Built by local non-profit Habitat for Humanity of Kent County, an army veteran, his wife and children are just days away from moving into their brand new house. Jon and Lindsay Droski learned the non-profit had accepted their application more than a year ago when Habitat Kent called her on the phone and gave her the good news. 

“I couldn’t believe it,” Lindsay said. “I started jumping up and down, and I ran down to the main floor telling everybody I worked with. It was a great, phenomenal feeling to hear those words: ‘we’re going to build you a house.’
