MERCERSBURG, Pa. — Jason and Amy Seville of Mercersburg have never had a backyard for their four children to play in, but that will soon change with the help of Habitat for Humanity.
Mark Story, executive director of Habitat’s Franklin County chapter, announced Wednesday night that the family is the next recipient of a new rehabbed home in Mercersburg.
He spoke briefly to a crowd of about 150 people at the Tuscarora Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual Business Person of the Year awards dinner inside Keil Hall on the campus of Mercersburg Academy.
Jason Seville grew up in Mercersburg, and he and his wife decided to make it their home when their first child came along almost a decade ago.
Since then, the Sevilles have been living in a small apartment without enough bedrooms for their four children — ages 9, 7, 5, and 3 — and two properties are currently being considered for their new place, Story said.
