LowCountry Habitat Dedications for Houses # 43 & 44!
As 2015 draws to a close,  two of our partner families moved in to their new homes in time for Christmas!

Just before Thanksgiving The Stud House at 19 Mint Farm Drive was Dedicated for the Adderley Family; this past Saturday the Tribute to Volunteers House at 20 Mint Farm Drive was Dedicated for the Greene Family.

LowCountry Habitat thanks all of our supporters who enable our mission to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope in northern Beaufort County.

Volunteer Spotlight
Jerry Marlow
 
IMG_1978

Jerry Marlow is one of our talented Carpenter volunteers. Our crew of around a dozen volunteers spend Tuesday through Thursday mornings each week, creating the Beaufort Collection of Furniture at our Burton Hill Road Warehouse. You can read more about the Beaufort Collection here.

Jerry began his long time volunteer history with LowCountry Habitat as a Saturday Construction volunteer. When he retired he was able to increase his volunteer schedule to 3 days a week. With the passage of time Jerry switched from swinging a hammer on the construction site, to building the Beaufort Collection with his construction volunteer buddies Milton Lawrence and Robb Alexander. Today, because Jerry is his wife's principal caretaker, he prefers to help with the Beaufort Collection by working from his home workshop. Jerry has the same array of tools that are available at our warehouse, including the scroll saw that he uses to cut the Palmetto Tree and Clemson Paw Print shapes into various items in the Beaufort Collection. At the ReStore this Christmas season you may have seen the red and green Luminary boxes that Jerry also crafted.

Many of the cut-outs on the Luminary boxes are incredibly intricate and in themselves bear the testimony of Jerry's patience and skill.

Thank You Jerry for everything you do to help LowCountry Habitat for Humanity. Your dedication is very much appreciated!

Volunteer Appreciation
April is Volunteer Appreciation Month

LowCountry Habitat for Humanity is blessed with many fabulous and dedicated volunteers. Without our wonderful volunteers Low Country Habitat would not be able to build homes, communities and hope. In fiscal 2015 alone, 300 Volunteers dedicated almost 10,500 hours to our programs!

In recognition of our amazing volunteers we are currently planning an equally amazing Volunteer Appreciation Event in April. (This replaces the January 8 event announced a few weeks ago.) Be sure to be on the look out for more details of what promises to be an evening to remember!
