Bridges Students Make Community Connections

Bridges Students Make Community Connections
Posted on 05/25/2021
Bill Orton & Brian Ferk Bill Orton has lived in his home on Shawano Avenue near West High School for 60 years. When the Bridges Construction & Renovation crew began their new home build right next door, Bill was so happy. He regularly bakes cookies for the high school students, and stops by often to check out the home's progress. The new home is being built at 1064 Shawano Ave. in partnership with NeighborWorks Green Bay.

Bill and his wife raised six kids of their own, and Bill hopes a family with children moves in next door when the home is complete. Bill often shares stories of his beloved wife who has passed, and says he is happy to have someone to bake for once again. 

Our high school students are not just learning how to build a home. They are learning how to improve neighborhoods, make connections with people, and leave something better than the way they found it. Thank for your support, Bill! The students are happy to build a home you will be proud to have next door.
