AUBURN – The annual meeting of Androscoggin Habitat for Humanity will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 5, at the Christian Science Church, 79 Lake St.

State Sen. Peggy Rotundo, Senate Appropriations Committee chairwoman, will speak on the need for affordable housing.

President Sally Belisle said the public is invited.

“This will be an excellent opportunity to learn about Habitat activities and the various ways to become involved as a volunteer,” she said.

The agenda includes election of board members, an update on the present building project and review of fundraising plans that include establishing a store to sell donated items that Androscoggin Habitat cannot use immediately in its projects. Refreshments will be served.

Androscoggin Habitat, an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, has built 13 houses since 1989. Working in partnership with families, using volunteer labor and donated materials whenever possible, it builds homes that are sold to families at cost with zero percent interest loans and no profit made. Mortgage payments help provide the money to build new houses.
