Union County Habitat for Humanity expanding into Chesterfield County, SC
The general public is invited to attend an informational meeting of the expansion of the Habitat for Humanity program on Wednesday, Oct.Full Story
#1 Dec 24, 2009
I see this as both a good and a not so good thing. Habitat has been successful in Union County NC because there are a lot of donors of work and materials.
U.C. is wealthy compared to C.C. Habitat in U.C. receives a lot of money from individuals and groups. I doubt that the donors in C.C. can match that.
There are 14 building supply companies in U.C. and numerous hardware stores that donate materials to build the habitat houses. There are plenty of volunteer organizations willing and even competing to send volunteer building teams in U.C. Compare that with Chesterfield County. There are now only 4 building supply companies in C.C. and 5 hardwares, 2 of them small. There are some volunteer organizations that are willing to send building teams.
I hope that this partnership with U.C. Habitat means that help from the north is on the way. There are plenty of poor people in need of good housing here, especially in Pageland where living conditions for some people are just plain awful.
