Partners to build House of Hope
MOORE — Two Structures LLC said it plans to partner with the Central Oklahoma Home Builders Association and Simpson Strong-Tie to build the 2014 House of Hope in Moore with sale proceeds benefiting Cavett Kids Foundation, which provides positive experiences for kids with life-threatening illnesses. The house will be at 841 SW 11 St., directly north of Plaza Towers Elementary School, which was destroyed by the May 20 tornado. Completion is scheduled for April.
