Darlington County Habitat Marks 20th Anniversary
In celebration of their 20th anniversary, Darlington County Habitat for Humanity will dedicate the new home of Angela Knox, 908 Hampton Street, Hartsville on Sunday, August 7, 2016 at 3pm. This public ceremony will celebrate the Knox family achieving the American dream of owning their own home. An open house and light refreshments will follow the service.
Darlington County Habitat for Humanity was chartered in July 1996 and for 20 years has strived to achieve the vision of affordable housing for all of Darlington County’s residents. During this time the affiliate has constructed 43 new homes and sold them at cost with no interest via a 20 year mortgage. They have also assisted more than 100 homeowners with home improvements or repairs, and funded the construction of 61 homes overseas.
“I am extremely proud of the accomplishments that we have made at Darlington County Habitat,” said Mark Haenchen, Executive Director. “And it is the dedicated supporters of our community that have made it all possible.”
Donors support Habitat through monetary and in-kind donations, volunteering, and by shopping at one of their two ReStores in Hartsville and Darlington. Mortgage payments from existing Habitat homeowners are also used to construct more Habitat homes.
Interested volunteers can contact Habitat for Humanity’s Hartsville office at 843-383-8500 or visit one of the ReStores located at 120 W Washington Street, Hartsville, and 1106 S Main Street, Darlington.
