Habitat for Humanity Berks County held a dedication ceremony on Tulpehocken Street in Reading this past weekend for new homeowner Jeffry Santos. A small group of residents, volunteers, and community leaders attended to show support.

“We are thrilled to announce our newest homebuyer and proud of the beautiful renovation of Tulpehocken Street. Home dedication ceremonies are great events that allow us to introduce the city of Reading to another great neighbor. Many volunteers contributed their time and talent to renovate this home from top to bottom, and we are grateful for their support. Penske Truck Leasing was the lead sponsor on this home and contributed generously in dollars as well as volunteers.” said Tim Daley, Habitat Executive Director.

The home was completely renovated, which includes new electrical and plumbing, replacing the roof with slate to match its original beauty, and rebuilding the front porch. Additional projects included resurfacing the exterior brick and all of the home’s windows, new kitchen and bathrooms, re-configuring the floor plan, and painting.
