West Pasco Habitat for Humanity needs hard hats


Habitat for Humanity needs more hard hats

Got hard hats? West Pasco Habitat for Humanity needs them. The nonprofit organization is seeking donations of Occupational Safety and Health Administration-approved construction hard hats for the volunteers who build homes for families. Relying on the "sweat equity" of families being helped by the program, Habitat has built 17 homes in west Pasco over the years and plans to break ground on four more by the end of this year. If you have an unused hard hat or if you know of a business or a company that no longer needs theirs, contact West Pasco Habitat for Humanity at (727) 859-9038. The office is at 3531 Grand Blvd. in New Port Richey.
