Habitat Makes Home Repairs in Glass Farm Neighborhood
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) — Habitat for Humanity is getting some help from Lowe’s for a community project in the Historic Glass Farm Neighborhood.
The home improvement company had some of its employees join more than 30 volunteers, Thursday, to repair the homes of three residents, and build a trail head to connect some state park trails.
Renovations were also made to the headquarters of Glass House Collective.
Lowe’s awarded Habitat for Humanity $56,780 in grants to help complete the projects.
“The great thing about Lowe’s, you have tremendous number of volunteers every year,” said David Butler, President/CEO, Habitat for Humanity. “They run the gamut of skills. The great news about Lowe’s is when they come out and work on the house we don’t have to teach them very much.”
“It’s a blessing,” said Chattanooga resident Patricia Worthen. “It’s all a blessing. I mean every time I see it and when I heard it they were fixing to do it. They told me two days before they was going to do it. They told me that Wednesday and that they would be out here that Friday. And I just started crying in the office. It was a blessing.”
Lowes has been a national partner with Habitat for Humanity for 14 years.
To date, they have given more than $63 million to help aid in home repairs, and have helped more than 6,500 families.
