You might have noticed we love to share the stories of where our homeowners have come from and what they continue to accomplish. But these Habitat homes have touched more than just the parents' lives. We're excited to continue our "Habitat Kids" segment! For Alexus, Habitat not only afforded her family the opportunity to have a safe and healthy home, it also gave her the chance to grow as an individual.
We love our Habitat Kids and your support allows us to help more kids chase their wild and wonderful dreams! Below, Alexus shares what Habitat means to her.
"Happiness is contagious. Be a carrier."
We love to highlight our #volunteers because we know how special they truly are. If anyone embodies the quote above, it's Kimberlie. In her last few weeks in the community, there were so many things she could've spent her time on and she chose volunteering with Sumter Habitat ReStore. She chose to give us that time, and allowed us to benefit exponentially from her kindness, compassion, and dedicated work ethic. Kim embodies the resourcefulness, creativity, and ethical and professional responsibility that one would expect in a dedicated service member. Kim and others like her are why we are so blessed to have Shaw Air Force Base in our community.
The Columbia Fireflies are hosting a special game night in honor of #MidlandsGives participating nonprofits! We need your help to "Pack The Park" as they take on the Greenville Drive Tuesday, August 7th at 7:05pm!
Tickets are $10 per person; for every ticket we sell, the Fireflies will donate $5 to Sumter Habitat for Humanity! The Fireflies will also donate $0.50 from every ticket scanned at the game into a prize pool, and the three nonprofits that sell the most tickets will get to split the prize. On top of that, the nonprofit that sells the most tickets to the game will have the opportunity to throw out the ceremonial first pitch!
