Franklin County commissioners have committed $25,000 from the county's Housing Trust Fund for two Habitat for Humanity projects.

Mark Story, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County, requested the funds to help redevelop blighted properties in Chambersburg and Waynesboro.

A couple donated the property at 25 North Broad Street, Waynesboro, to the nonprofit. The structure was razed because it was unsafe, but Habitat hopes to build a single-family home on the site in 2016.

Habitat for Humanity's ReStore home improvement store found a more relevant way to celebrate its grand opening on Jan. 23 — with a board cutting ceremony.

After sawing through the piece of lumber, store manager Justin Hoke opened his doors to a line of about 40 shoppers.
