Lowcountry Habitat for Humanity raised the walls on its 46th local home build on Friday along Trask Parkway in Seabrook. Sheryl Tucker and her son Keyvon will be the proud homeowners of the new house which was sponsored by fundraising from the community of Brays Island.
”I know there are thousands of Habitat Homeowners out there, but I feel like I’m the first,” Sheryl said. “I am so happy to finally see my house. I am smiling so hard that my cheeks hurt.”
The mood was jubilant as volunteers got together for the wall-raising on Friday morning. Lowcountry Habitat was joined for the build this week by a collegiate challenge group visiting and working with the organization from Neumann University in Philadelphia, PA. Habitat for Humanity’s Collegiate Challenge is a year-round alternative break program where groups of students give up their break to spend one week working with Lowcountry Habitat and partner families to help eliminate poverty housing in Beaufort.
Congratulations to the Tucker Family, and to the volunteers and supporters.
Eat Sleep Play Beaufort is honored to be a partner and proud supporter of Lowcountry Habitat for Humanity.
