In honor of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday and day of service, Habitat for Humanity of Westchester has scheduled a full week of volunteering.
The Martin Luther King Jr. Build-a-thon began Friday, January 17 and will continue through Sunday, January 26.
Habitat volunteers will work on veteran's homes in Yonkers, painting projects in New Rochelle and working on a condo in Peekskill.
Another New Rochelle project is replacing siding at the Faith in Temple Church of God in Christ.
Executive Director Jim Killoran said some of the organizations that will be working in the "build-a-thon" are the Inter-religious Council of New Rochelle, Temple Israel of New Rochelle, Shiloh Baptist Church, Iona College, Horace Greeley High and Horace Mann High School.
"We have a dream that everyone in Westchester County, in Hurricane Sandy area and in New York can have a simple descent home to live in," Killoran said. "Affordability has been near impossible."
