If you help build a duplex for two low-income families, does that give you double good karma?

Habitat for Humanity is seeking volunteers for a home-building project in Newton.

The organization broke ground in September on the project, which involves building a duplex for two families at 76 Webster Park, and needs to raise about $300,000 to complete the project, said Ted Kuklinski, co-chair of the Newton Habitat Committee.

The organizing committee is meeting at St. Ignatius Church in Chesnut Hill on Jan. 7 at 7:30 p.m. Volunteers can visit www.localendar.com/public/hfhnewton to find build days.

Donations can be sent to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Boston, P.O. Box 610242, Newton, MA 02461.
