She has put more than 250 hours of her own time into building homes for families through Flower City Habitat for Humanity, but on Saturday Sylvia Pardner was the recipient of her own home.
Flower City Habitat for Humanity and the Greece coalition of churches dedicated Pardner's home for her and her great-grand children Saturday on Eddy Street.
Pardner worked at Monroe Community Hospital for 29 years and now that she's retired she wants to put her effort into her great-grandchildren and creating a loving home for them.
“That was the best part of it, learning that I actually helped build this, that's the biggest thrill of it all, but it's a home for me and my children,” said Parder.
When Parder and her two great-grandchildren move in she will pay a 30-year zero interest mortgage on her home.
