Deborah Powell: One Veteran Homeowner’s Habitat Home Repair Story
Meet Deborah Powell. A transplant to Georgia, she is a retiree out of the U.S. Air Force and an ordained minister at Hind’s Feet Prophetic Worship Center. She volunteers regularly with the Clayton County Sheriff’s Department, teaching Bible studies to women inmates on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, spreading messages of hope and love.
SCHFH recently accepted Deborah to our Veteran and home repair program, and we have been able to have her kitchen appliances updated, her flooring redone, her roof repaired, and other repairs to her home completed. Deborah asks all SCHFH supporters to help support our veterans in honor of upcoming Veteran’s Day and Georgia Gives Day: “The average citizen can give back to a vet by making donations. When you’re asleep at night, they are over out on the field protecting you and me. And so, by giving back that’s just showing your appreciation of what they have done.”
Donations between now and November 17th, 2016 are DOUBLED thanks to a matching gift from our Board President, Elias Makres. Donors who give $50 or more are invited to attend our party at TopGolf Atlanta Midtown. Give today at schabitat.org/gagivesday.
