Family presented with new Habitat for Humanity Henderson home

Lowe's and Habitat for Humanity Las Vegas presented its 103rd home to the family of Arturo and Maria Camarena and their five daughters on Tuesday. The home is located in Henderson's Pittman area.

The ceremony was attended by Habitat Las Vegas' Executive Director Meg Delor and Habitat board member Eloiza Martinez.

The family was also presented with a bible and a Kobalt tool box.

As part of Habitat’s homeownership program, the Camarena’s completed their combined 600-hour requirement of “sweat equity” working on their home, in addition to other Habitat homes.
 
To kick off the build of the Camarena home, NASCAR Sprint Cup champion, Jimmie Johnson and more than 100 Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers helped frame the house prior to his race at the Kobalt 400 in early March. Lowe’s has continued to provide funding and volunteer support to complete the house.
 
Lowe’s has partnered with Habitat for Humanity for more than a decade to build homes and revitalize communities around the country. Since 2003, Lowe’s has committed more than $63 million to Habitat and helped nearly 4,000 families improve their living conditions.
