Lowcountry Habitat for Humanity dedicates its 42nd house
LowCountry Habitat for Humanity dedicated its 42nd home in a small ceremony, with the new owners set to move in on May 1st. New owners, the Jenkins Family, were present along with friends and Lowcountry Habitat volunteers.
The home is located at 918 Lafayette St in the Pigeon Point Neighborhood and is the second home that the local organization has built in the neighborhood. Last August, the home next door at 916 was also dedicated. New homeowner, Debra Jenkins completed over 250 hours of sweat equity as their part in the program.
The home is LowCountry Habitat for Humanity’s 42nd build in northern Beaufort County since its inception in 1990 and there’s more to come. “It’s great to have land, families and ongoing fundraising efforts in line to keep right on building here in Pigeon Point and over at Mint Farm. It’s very exciting to see an empty lot transform into a family’s dream come true,” said Brenda Dooley, Lowcountry Habitat’s Executive Director.
As Habitat for Humanity moves forward in the local Beaufort area, construction will begin shortly at those new home sites in the Mint Farm Neighborhood, off of Joe Frazier Road near Battery Creek high School. One of the homes will be built with decorated wall studs in Habitat’s “Love Your Stud” fundraiser, in which people adopted and decorated the wooded studs to be used.
