FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (July 29, 2015)
J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. and J. J. Keller Foundation complete 12th Habitat for Humanity build
Neenah, WI - In a dream come true, Erika Hall and her daughter Amaya received the keys to their new Habitat for Humanity home in a dedication ceremony held Thursday, July 23rd.
Their Neenah, Wis. home represents the 12th home funded by the John and Ethel Keller family (either through the family foundation or their fund at the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley region) in cooperation with J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. Construction of the home started in April, with a combination of J. J. Keller associate volunteers, Habitat senior crew members, and Erika herself putting in hundreds of hours of hard work to complete the home in four short months.
“What Amaya and I are feeling today is a crazy mix of joy, relief, disbelief, hopefulness, and about a thousand other feelings that are making our heads spin in the best possible way,” said Erika. “To see our home, complete and ready for Amaya and I to start a new chapter in, brings a very significant sense of peace.”
In attendance at the dedication were representatives from the Greater Fox Cities Area Habitat for Humanity and the J. J. Keller Foundation, local officials, as well as many of the family’s friends and relatives.
“Habitat was near and dear to the hearts of Jack and Ethel Keller, and it’s wonderful to see their giving legacy perpetuated in this manner,” said J. J. Keller Foundation Executive Director Mary Harp-Jirschele. “I know they’d be very proud of the great hands-on work by J. J. Keller associates and well as the funding role played by the foundation.”
