MASON CITY, Iowa - Organizers gathered at the North Iowa Event Center on Friday to prepare for an event that will help those in need from across the globe.
North Iowa Partner Churches are coming together to build Safe T Homes for Haitians who lost their homes in the 2010 earthquake that devastated the country.
Event coordinator, Terri Pals said, “Sukup manufacturing came up with the idea to modify one of their grain bins for people to live in.”
These bins are broken down and used as the building materials for volunteers to create homes for those in need in Haiti.
“Eagle Grove has Global Compassion Network,” Pals said, “and they partnered with Sukups to bring the Safe T Homes from Sukup to Haiti."
This organization will be bringing a number of volunteers from the north Iowa area to Haiti to help construct and set up the homes in the Haitian communities.
The event will last all day on Saturday the 19th of October and in addition to one of the Safe T homes being build, there will be a silent auction, live auction, entertainment and food throughout the day.
