Habitat For Humanity finalizing Virginia home

Posted: Updated:
VIRGINIA, MN -

Since 1995, Habitat for Humanity has provided homes for nearly 80 families, throughout 14 communities on the Iron Range.

on Thursday, volunteers were brushing the final coat of paint on the newest home in Virginia.  

Volunteers included the mayor of Virginia, and members of the Virginia Police Department.

The latest home will be home to Michael Bane, whose career as a deputy was cut short due to a stroke. 

Bane, who had to learn to speak again after the stroke, said the community support in getting this home built has been nothing short of amazing. 

"Well, it's really kind of nice here, because I see them coming here to do [everything], even doing the painting,  they're very, very nice. I had so much help for me, and [it's] just very, very nice." Said Bane. 

Bane himself has been a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity for 2 years now.
