St. Joseph County, Indiana Habitat for Humanity is counting down for the start of the 35th annual Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Works Project during the last week of August. The non-profit hosted a “Kid’s Day” Tuesday for those moving into new homes to mingle with future neighbors.

Jim Williams is the President and CEO of St. Joseph County Habitat for Humanity. He stands under a pavilion at Potawatomi Park in South Bend, as he tries to avoid a collision with kids present for the ‘Kid’s Day’. He says events like this help build a sense of community for those in the program.

Indiana reportedly won’t be the location of a new Toyota-Mazda plant slated for construction in the U.S. in the next few years.

The South Bend Tribune reports economic development officials in St. Joseph County announced this week that Indiana had been dropped from consideration.
