Habitat for Humanity of Douglas County (HFHDC) and the Inclusion network will host a community presentation on Thursday, April 11. Members of the community can learn more about Bangladesh and the volunteers' experiences building homes for families in need.

The presentation will be held at 6:30 p.m. at Alexandria Technical and Community College Auditorium 743. Olsen and Zilliox will be on hand to share their photos and experiences and to answer questions.

Through their tithe gifts, HFHDC has built 40 homes overseas, in addition to the 34 homes built in Douglas County since 1997.
