CountryMark & Habitat to Build a New Home in Mt. Vernon
CountryMark and Habitat for Humanity of Evansville announced plans this week to build a home for Reverend Myers and Anna Hyman.
Pastor Hyman and his wife are known in the community as the couple behind the At The Cross Mission located in Mt. Vernon. The mission operates a food pantry, a clothing distribution center and a free meal program six days a week for those who are in need. This past year, the Mission served 12,000 free meals.
“We’re especially looking forward to Thanksgiving,” said Anna. “No one should be alone or hungry on Thanksgiving, so the Mission will be open and serving hot meals for those who need it most in our Posey County community.”
Posey County is also home to the CountryMark oil refinery, which was built in 1940. CountryMark is a farmer-owned cooperative and is Indiana’s only American-owned oil exploration, production, refining and marketing company.
“On behalf of our employees, we are happy to support the Habitat ministry and individuals like Pastor Hyman and his wife Anna, who give generously of their time and talents to our community,” said CountryMark CEO Charlie Smith. The Hyman house will mark the second Habitat home CountryMark has built in as many years in Mt. Vernon.
CountryMark donated $55,000 toward the building of the Hyman home, which will be constructed at the corner of Second and Maple Street in Mt. Vernon. Construction will begin next spring and the Hymans plan to be in their new house by Thanksgiving of next year.
“We’re looking forward to owning our own home,” said Pastor Hyman.
According to Habitat for Humanity, home recipients must volunteer 300 hours of labor on the building of their home and other Habitat homes.
“Our sincere thanks to CountryMark for their financial contribution, as well as the volunteer labor that we know we can count on from their employees,” said Lori Reed, CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Evansville. “This home is really about coming together to build a stronger community.”
