The Effingham Civil War Experience will be held next Saturday, May 18 at the Rincon Event Field behind Fuller Chevrolet in Rincon. Fuller is the major sponsor of this event which will benefit Habitat for Humanity of Effingham County and several other local non-profits. Please come out and support us!
Thanks to Freddie Jones of Mercer Transportation, Gypsum Express, and Corey Rahn of Rahn Services for helping getting the shingles donated by Certain Teed in Peachtree City delivered to us and unloaded at our warehouse in Rincon. These will be used in our construction ministry for both new homes and critical home repairs.
Now that we have the top of the houses handled, we need to get the rest of the materials to put under the shingles. We have two families waiting for the construction of their homes to begin.
The Restore needs donations of your stuff! Drop off Tuesday through Saturday or call 912-826-6433 to arrange for a pickup. We take furniture, appliances, household goods as well as building and remolding items.
Our first Critical Home Repair for Veterans Project is complete. We began this project on November 11 and completed everything just before New Years Day. We have a very greatful veteran as a result of this effort.
This project was sponsored and funded by the Home Depot Foundation and the Home Depot Repair Corp.
We are looking for other canditates in Effingham County for this effort.
We have completed the repairs on the Wilson Home which was damaged by fire late last year. We would like to thank the community for supporting us in this effort. Without community envolvement we cannot respond to the crisis situatiions for families in our county. We still need cash donations for this project to pay for the dump fees now that the debris from the fire clean-up and construction has been hauled away.
We will begin our first Repair Corps Project on November 11 and 12. This is the first Critical Home Repair for Veterans project for which we have received approval and funding from The Home Depot Foundation.
The worksite will be in Rincon. Call Habitat for Humaity of Effingham County at 912.826.6433 if you would like to volunteer your help with this project.
