West Willow Resident Satisfaction Survey- As Part of the Lowe's Grant that was awarded to H4H for West Willow a door-to-door survey is being conducted throughout  the month of October. We really appreciate all who complete a survey.
Habitat For Humanity of Huron Valley is working with residents of West Willow to learn more about what things you would like to see to make it even better! We would love to have your input by answering the questions of the survey when someone comes to your door. The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete. If you prefer you can contact Habitat's West Willow Coordinator Shataura Clayborne at 734-478-6331 or to do the survey on line. Please also follow our other social medias for information about what's happening in West Willow: Facebook, Nextdoor and THIS IS WEST WILLOW THANG.
