Habitat for Humanity Tri-Cities and local volunteers completed several Impact Day projects in May, and another project is planned Saturday.

The projects include external painting and basic health and safety, such as installing wheelchair ramps and stair rails, a Habitat news release said.

The Habitat Impact Day effort, part of the nonprofit's Home Preservation program, focuses on helping elderly, disabled, veteran and single-parent households, with homeowners paying for materials and volunteers contributing the labor, the release said.

Volunteers from Areva, Cascade Natural Gas, HAPO, ConAgra/Lamb Weston, Young Marines and the Richland Seventh-day Adventist Church have taken on projects.

Financial support has come from groups including Barnhart Crane, Blue Bridge Church, Cascade Natural Gas, Columbia Kiwanis, HAPO, Holy Spirit Parish, Iron Workers Union, Lutheran Church of the Master, Chris Smith of Intellegration and Richland Seventh-day Adventist Church, the release said.

The local Habitat for Humanity accepts applications from homeowners for Impact Day work throughout the year.
