The El Dorado County Chapter of Habitat for Humanity has selected its first family out of hundreds whom have applied to become homeowners for their new Cameron Park project.

After an extensive and lengthy qualification process, Mr. and Mrs. Brandon Peterson and their family from Shingle Springs were selected to purchase and help build one of four homes Habitat will construct in Cameron Park in 2011.

“We’re so happy to have selected the Peterson family. Not only did they have to qualify financially, they also have to put in 500 volunteer hours to be eligible,” said Scott Saitman, Habitat board president. “We’re excited for our upcoming build in Cameron Park. With the economy in the state it is in, we’re hoping to be able to have supplies donated as well as volunteers available to help build these homes.”

For volunteer or general information interested parties should visit www.edchabitat.com or call (530) 621-1111.
