New Volunteer Opportunities
Construction will soon be underway on the Brays Island new house build at Seabrook. We will need a large team of construction volunteers for this project.
The ReStore is building a Procurement Team to solicit donations of gently used household items, building materials and books.
If you have an interest in either of these volunteer activities, please contact Lee at the office: 843-522-3500 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Many Thanks to all of our dedicated construction volunteers who are now close to completing the rehab of the ReStore House at 1603 Ivy Lane.
Construction manager, Michael Perry is confident that the Johnson family will be moved into their new home for Christmas! House Dedication details will be emailed soon.
Our construction volunteers will take a break this Thursday for the Thanksgiving holiday. On Saturday morning we will return to 5 Inwood Court
to work on the ramp, continuing with this project next Tuesday and Thursday. On Wednesday morning we will be at 1603 Ivy Lane.
If you have completed volunteer orientation and are eager to "swing a hammer" please email email@example.com to let him know to expect you.
The construction schedule is Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, beginning promptly at 8 am and ending at noon.
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.
Speaking of our Family Partners
They're doing a great job of earning their sweat equity hours
If you are a Construction or ReStore volunteer you may have met our current Family Partners. Sweat equity hours can be earned by volunteering in the office, helping with mailings and representing LowCountry Habitat at community events as well as at the ReStore and construction site. Here are some pictures of Family Partners working at recent events.
