Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity receives grant from Lowe’s!

Lowe’s Partnership Renewal

Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity is excited to share that we were selected as a recipient of the Lowe’s Housing Plus Grant. This funding is a part of Lowe’s partnership renewal with Habitat for Humanity that includes a donation of $2.5 million to support 100 local Habitat organizations undertaking home repair and rehab projects across the U.S.

This year, 100 local Habitat affiliates will complete 628 projects, including 67 critical home repairs, 276 home preservations, and 285 housing plus projects to provide aging-in-place solutions that help make homes safe and accessible.

Helping families, fixing homes

Across our country access to quality, affordable home repair, and modification services are almost inaccessible to those with low to moderate incomes. With the support of this grant, we will be able to further help families in Clayton, Henry, and Fayette counties address critical health and safety issues in their homes.

Lowe’s and Habitat began their partnership in 2003. Since then, Lowe’s has supported many of the global housing nonprofit’s efforts, including the Women Build Program and Habitat’s Neighborhood Revitalization program. Lowe’s has also supported Habitat’s Cost of Home national advocacy campaign and sponsored local Habitat builds and employee volunteer days, in addition to providing affiliate grants and donated products. Lowe’s commitment through 2022 will bring the company’s total contributions to Habitat to more than $84 million.

Gala Raises Funds for Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity and Other Fayette County Nonprofits

It’s very seldom that you find film and philanthropy in the same sentence, but since 2014, Pinewood Studios has been an instrumental part of creating awareness and raising funds for Fayette County nonprofits through their annual winter gala. Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity is honored to be one of those benefitting nonprofits.

This year’s red carpet gala featured a mystical experience from META studios, photo booths, delicious cuisine from Hanna Brothers Catering, and more.

Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity uses the money raised from the “Reel People Care” Pinewood Studios Atlanta Winter Gala to go towards our mission of making sure that every one has a decent and safe place to call home. Last year, we were able to complete a project for a Peachtree City family that needed critical home repairs.
