The Hammer, December 2017
Dedication of House Number 48!
On December 16th, we dedicated the Brays Island House to the Tucker Family. Congratulations to Sheryl and her son Keyvon. Their smiles speak for themselves! Read more here.
Pictured above, Wells Fargo Volunteer, Delicia Dilbert joined our shed building task force last Thursday. While we wait on final permitting for our Greene Street builds, we are building sheds at our warehouse located at 24 Burton Hill Road. The shed building process will teach new volunteers some of the skills needed for building houses. We have also generated a new income stream as the sheds will be available for sale at the ReStore!
If you have completed volunteer orientation and want to help with shed building, check the schedule below and email Michael@lowcountryhabitat.org, so that he will know to expect you and be able to plan accordingly:
Thursday December 21, 8 am until noon
Saturday December 23, 8 am until 2 pm

Our next Construction Update will be emailed on Thursday January 4th.
Thanks to all of our volunteers who help LowCountry Habitat for Humanity bring people together to build homes, communities and hope in northern Beaufort County.
