On Thursday, May 22, Habitat for Humanity Metro Maryland (HFHMM) brought together volunteers from the Greater Washington, D.C. area to continue construction on the Maple Hill Project, a community of 19 townhomes on Emory Grove Road in Gaithersburg. Future homeowners and 15 local Bank of America executives spent the day working together to paint the walls and finishing interior trim work. Groundbreaking occurred in the spring of 2012 with work continuing through this summer.
Each townhouse in the Maple Hill Project features three bedrooms and two-and-half bathrooms, with a garage on the first level. The community is built on 2.9 acres of land, purchased from a private seller in 2011. All homes will be sold to applicants earning less than 60 percent of the Area Median Income in Montgomery County. The Bank of America Charitable Foundation has contributed more than $24.5 million to Habitat’s work around the world through a national partnership launched in 2002. This partnership reflects a joint commitment between Habitat and Bank of America to create strong, vibrant neighborhoods, while also providing opportunities for families to achieve home ownership.
