Saturday September 17, 2016

In the Fall of 2014, the ReStore celebrated its 10th Anniversary by hosting an UpCycled Art Auction Event that raised half the monies needed for the ReStore House.

An UpCycled Art Auction is a celebration of local and regional craftsmen who have repurposed, recycled, reclaimed or reimagined materials to create art. This year we are hosting a second UpCycled Art Auction on September 17, 2016 at The Shed in Port Royal to raise $30,000.00 to complete the sponsorship for the ReStore House, which will become the Johnson Family Home.

Construction News
 

Sat 06 25 Jim


Many Thanks to brand new LowCountry Habitat volunteer Cpl. Diamond Peden, Public Affairs, 6th Marine Corps District, for this marvellous photo of LowCountry Habitat Board Chair and long time construction volunteer, Jim Daniels.

In addition to helping with painting at 8 Paulik Place last Saturday, Diamond took her camera along and captured these two great pictures of Jim Daniels and Buddy Coleman.

Diamond remarked that she never realized how much just 5 volunteers were able to achieve in 4 hours.
 
 Sat 06 25

The refurbishment of 8 Paulik Place is almost complete. Next week we will continue with the last of the painting, flooring installation and work on the punch list items. If you have completed volunteer orientation and can help Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, 8 am until noon, please email michael@lowcountryhabitat.org so that he will know to expect you.

LowCountry Habitat thanks all our faithful volunteers for their contributions of time and talent. Volunteers like you help to make dreams of homeownership a reality for our Family Partners.
 
New signage at the Warehouse

Calling all volunteers who have an interest in helping to craft or paint our Beaufort Collection of custom built furniture at the warehouse on Tuesday through Thursday mornings. The warehouse on Burton Hill Road can be quite tricky to find, as several of our new volunteers found just recently. From Hwy 170, take Burton Hill Road at the stop light near Lowes. Look for the fire station on your left and take the next left which is a driveway, marked for The Greenery, located behind the warehouse.The quansett hut, which serves as our warehouse, is straight ahead. In the street view picture below, you can see the semi-circular shaped quansett hut at the end of the drive.

If you want to find out where you can help and work with this wonderful group of talented volunteers, led by Milton Lawrence, just go along and visit. Be on the look out for our new sign above the entrance and you wont end up at The Greenery!
