Thomas and Victoria Gallimore are officially the proud owners of a renovated Habitat for Humanity home in the 400 block of Miner Street in Wabash.
On Sunday, Aug. 2, the Wabash County Habitat for Humanity committee turned over the house keys and Bible to the family in a dedication ceremony and open house.
It means a lot to own their own home, Gallimore told The Paper of Wabash County.
“There’s so many things that having our own home like this opens up for us,” he said. “Being youth leaders in our church, to be able to have the youth come over and actually have a place to come over that’s not the church building, is the biggest thing.”
