LIers start work on Habitat for Humanity home
Students and volunteers from across Long Island helped erect the first wall of a new home for a struggling family Thursday.
Cynthia Albinowski and her family, currently living in a small apartment in Amityville, expect to move into their new East Patchogue home in September.
The family applied for a Habitat for Humanity home in December. Albinowski?s husband is disabled and cares for their two children. Cynthia works for Cablevision, the parent company of News 12 Long Island.
Volunteers from Brookville?s Lutheran High School are helping build the four-bedroom home and donating $20,000. Fifty other Long Island schools will also help.
