Heroes & Housing

On Saturday, April 26, 2014, SCHFH  partnered with local veterans and supporters to begin home repair work for our very first veteran, Billy Pegram in McDonough, GA. Through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity International’s Repair Corps program, an initiative funded by The Home Depot Foundation to help repair, renovate or construct the homes of U.S. veterans, SCHFH will be able to serve 10 veterans this year.  Billy served in the Air force during the Korean War from 1951-1954.  He is a survivor of stage four cancer and multiple heart attacks and in the words of his daughter Bonnie, “is a true survivor.”

We were grateful to have volunteers from the Home Depot SDC in McDonough led by their General Manager, Ernest Washington.  In addition, we were presented with $5,000 in gift cards, jacuzzi tubs and donations to our McDonough ReStore from the new Home Depot Direct Fulfillment Center in Locust Grove.  Thank you so much to Home Depot for your support!
