Veterans Build 2018

 

We invited veterans and active military to join Sea Island Habitat to help build a Habitat home. We provided t-shirts, lunches and construction guidance. They provided the energy. We accomplished the following:

  • Honored our vets. This special event paid tribute to veterans, combining their work ethic and passion for helping others with Habitat's mission of bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
  • Strengthened the support network for vets. Construction experiences build strong bonds among fellow volunteers. These relationships can create a network for our vets so that they can help one another transition to and succeed in civilian life.
  • Helped provide dependable housing for a deserving family. Safe, decent, affordable housing is the centerpiece of all Habitat construction. Our partner families contribute sweat equity and receive an affordable mortgage. 
  • Explained the process for becoming a Habitat partner. As we forge relationships with the veterans who volunteer with us, we hope to find candidates for future Habitat homes.
  • Helped us purchase materials for this home. This event was free to all veterans and active military but we welcomed donations at any level to support our mission.
We still need you. Here is how you can help:
  • Volunteer at the site.  Check out our volunteer opportunities or contact Liv, liv@seaislandhabitat.org or (843) 768.0998.
  • Donate. Click here to help us complete this home.
  • Support our ReStore. The ReStore raises money to purchase materials for 5 complete homes a year. You can help by being a customer, by dropping off items during store hours, by scheduling a free pickup. or by using our free deconstruction services when you remodel.
