Get Habitat Hammered October 17th -18th

Get Hammered by Habitat for Humanity, October 17th – 18th

Hi to All Carolina Colours Residents!

On October 17th and 18th, Habitat for Humanity of Craven County is hosting the Habitat Crazies.  In those two days, two homes will be raised and siding, roofing and dry wall installed!  It will be an awesome event!  Habitat expects upwards of 150 to 200 volunteers for each of those days.  Hopefully, you will choose to be one of those volunteers.

We are in need of hammers.  Do you have an extra hammer you can spare?  The Carolina Colours Welcome Centre (Sales Office) is a drop off point for hammer collections.  The hammer drop off deadline is Thursday, October 15th.

Stay tuned for more information and other opportunities to help with this community effort.  Accept the challenge to “get involved” and help build us build homes for two deserving Craven County families.  One house will become “home” to an young New Bern couple while the other house will become “home” to a refugee family with six children.  You can make a difference in the lives of these families on Saturday and Sunday, October 17th – 18th.

Several of you have suggested a “building shower” where you can help by purchasing needed items for these new homes.  We’ll keep you posted on this effort as our plans progress.

In the meantime, commit to “Get Hammered” with Craven County’s Habitat community service organization!

Please feel free to contact me at 252-571-2421 to share your thoughts or ask questions.

Thanks so very much for your time and consideration of this very special Habitat for Humanity project.
