CLEARWATER – Robert and Dorothy Kimball of Clearwater left $50,000 of their estate to Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas, and their daughters, Mary K. Evers and Jane Magariner presented the check at a home dedication Feb. 7 in Clearwater.

“My mom and dad used to volunteer for Habitat for Humanity,” Evers said. “They helped build homes for years and years. I’m thrilled to be able to honor my parents. Their whole life, they were involved in church and loved the Lord. I can carry on what they’re doing. It’s very exciting.”

That week, Evers put one of their family Bibles in the cornerstone of the foundation of a Habitat house.

“To have the Bible in the foundation of the house will help her with the foundation of her family and raise her family of the Lord,” Evers said.

The check presentation took place at a Habitat home currently under construction for Wendy Alpizar, a single mother of three children, ages 9, 10 and 14.

According to Chris Sabo, vice president of major gifts from Habitat, the home should be finished in 16 weeks. The families who receive homes have to qualify financially and do at least 250 hours of work on their home and other Habitat for Humanity homes. They also must attend 13 homeowner courses to help ensure they become responsible homeowners.

“Our goal is that our families are successful,” Sabo said.
