LowCountry Habitat forHumanity
named as PickleJuice Productions Projects for Purpose inaugural recipient
As a marketing firm in Beaufort, PickleJuice Productions
has always appreciated the hard work our local non-profits do and has assisted with small pro bono projects for these organizations.
This year, PickleJuice has developed an opportunity to meet bigger goals by donating their creativity and services to one nonprofit organization – in an attempt to improve their Visual Identity, Brand Strategy & Marketing Communications for one full year. This new project is called PickleJuice Productions Projects for Purpose.
Ginger Wareham, Founder and Creator of PickleJuice Productions commented, “We’ve always tried to do our part to help our local non-profits pursue their missions more effectively. In the past, this assistance often began with a request from a nonprofit organization. They needed a logo, a poster, a website, a
t-shirt design or banners for an event and we delivered a solution."
" More often than not, non-profits are forced to prioritize operational & program costs, therefore neglecting important investments in their creative & marketing communications. PickleJuice Projects for Purpose allows us the opportunity to make a significant impact by helping a non-profit organization not just today but for years to come.”
LowCountry Habitat for Humanity is proud to announce that we are the chosen 2016 recipient of the PickleJuice Projects for Purpose. LowCountry Habitat Executive Director, Chet Houston said, “We are thrilled to be chosen as the inaugural recipient non-profit for the PickleJuice Projects for Purpose and can’t wait to see their creativity at work for LowCountry Habitat.”
The ReStore 2 House
1603 Ivy Lane , the ReStore 2 House, is currently undergoing asbestos removal. When the abatement process is complete, we will put the call out to our construction volunteers to help rehab the house. The ReStore 2 House will become home for the Johnson family: Orlando, Crystal, Orlando Jr (14), Robert (9), Triplets - Landyn, Nakonyah & Saniyah.
November 14, 2014 was a life altering day for the Johnson Family. It was the day they welcomed triplets into their family as well as the day they turned in their application to be a Habitat Family Partner.
Although Orlando is a hard working construction worker with Atlantic Marine, his income alone is insufficient to purchase a home large enough to support his family. The home that they rent is too small for their expanding family and has many repair issues including an insufficient heating and cooling system.
"I am excited to be able to call a house a home. A place for my children to be able to grow up in and one day look back on all the special memories we will make in our home. The group of people, volunteers, ReStore, office and board have been incredible with helping us succeed in the steps for us to make this long dream, hope, and wish, to be home owners, come true." - Crystal
The ReStore house, located in the Mossy Oaks neighborhood, where Crystal was raised, will become the Johnson family home. Crystal and Orlando are overjoyed to become homeowners.
