Dozens of volunteers turned out to the site near 7th Street and Broadway on Saturday, February 29 to write special messages to the family and officially call the project to a start.

Dick Luebke Jr. and his family foundation, along with volunteers from Pima Medical Institute’s three Valley campuses and corporate employees worked on a home in Mesa two years ago. Giving back to the community is a cause that is near and dear to the Luebke’s heart. A mission that carries through to Pima Medical Institute and its employees.

“This would cheer my dad’s heart,” said Dick Luebke Jr., Chairman of the Board, Pima Medical Institute. “He knew how important a house is for a family to create a home. Having a home brings an added dignity to people’s lives.” While we don’t know who the family will be just yet, we know they will be deserving and we hope this house becomes a home for them.”

The family will be chosen soon, and when they begin to work on their house, they will have the chance to read the messages written for them. Volunteers from Pima Medical Institute will work alongside them on the build, scheduled to wrap up this summer.
