Cheektowaga, NY (PressExposure) July 01, 2009 -- Good things come to those who wait. Thatâs more than just an adage for Loretta Lewis. It took her more than 10 years to complete the work hours necessary to become eligible for a Habitat for Humanity home. On May 22, her dream of home ownership came true as she and her son moved into her new home on Guilford Street in Buffalo.
âWhen I started putting in hours for Habitat, I never dreamed it would take this long. But things came up. For example, I moved to North Carolina for a while and began my studies for a nursing career,â said Lewis. âWhen we moved back to Buffalo, this was going to be my focus. Iâm just grateful it all came to fruition and weâre now in our brand new home.â
DirectBuy of Buffalo, located at 4950 Genesee Street in Cheektowaga, sponsored the construction of Lewisâ home. DirectBuy donated items for the homeâs kitchen and bathrooms, including cabinets, flooring and fixtures.
