Thank you ADP volunteers

We love our volunteers. Today, we had groups from ADP at each ReStore and the amount of needed work that got done was amazing. Many people do not realize that our volunteer opportunities go beyond just house construction. We always welcome volunteers at our ReStores. Thanks again, ADP. The pictures are the group that was at the downtown ReStore.

If you would like to volunteer for one of the ReStores or on a construction project, please click here. ReStore opportunities are available Tuesday through Saturday and house construction opportunities are normally on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. We are starting a new house on September 5th.

Dedication for House 75

Meet our partner: Miriam

Augusta native and lifelong resident Miriam has been working hard on her sweat equity hours for a few months now. Always a pleasure to be around, she is a major asset to Habitat in both the ReStores and home building.

Miriam has three lovely children, all girls, aged 4, 12, and 15. She works at University Hospital doing 12 hour shifts. As if that isn’t enough, she gives back to the community as part of a ministry through song called Bless-Ed. They are based out of True Testament of Jesus Christ Church in Aiken, SC. Click here to check out their web page.

She loves doing her sweat equity work and has learned so much. She says, “it has taught me so much and makes me feel so grateful and humble, it is a wonderful experience.” Working on house construction is preparing her to own her own home, something that will provide stability for her family. At the ReStores, she enjoys organizing things, a task that improves the customer experience at our stores.

Miriam is part of the gospel group Bless-Ed

Habitat donates lot for New Bethlehem Community Center Garden

Habitat for Humanity is a vital part of the Augusta/CSRA community and we often work with other organizations and local governments to improve the quality of living in the areas we serve. A few years ago, we allowed the New Bethlehem Community Center to use one of our vacant lots as a community garden. Local residents are learning about growing healthy food by participating and enjoying the fruits of their work.

This garden has been very successful, so we donated the lot to New Bethlehem Community Center so their community garden could be permanent. We are thrilled to be able to do this for such a wonderful community organization.

Fun at Phinizy Swamp Earth Day Celebration

The Augusta/CSRA Habitat for Humanity has always supported a greener world and one of our mottos for the ReStores is Recycle, Reuse, and Repurpose. Donating gently used items to the Restores keeps these things out of the landfill, helps others afford things they need, and supports Habitat’s mission of building houses to help our partner families.

You can bring donations to either ReStore (1004 Walton Way and 3112 Washington Rd) or call 706-426-8631 to arrange for a pickup of large items. We accept almost everything except clothing, as long as it is in working condition.

Come see us on Earth Day at Phinizy Swamp Nature Park Saturday

Come and see us at the Phinizy Swamp Nature Park Earth Day Celebration on Saturday, April 22nd, from 10 AM until 3 PM. We will have a table and will have some discount coupons for the ReStores.

Collegiate Challenge 2017 Great Success

Last week, students from the University of Virginia were with us every day as part of our Augusta/CSRA Habitat for Humanity Collegiate Challenge 2017. As you can see, a lot of progress was made on House 75 and the floor and walls were completed. Thank you to the students and local volunteers who made this happen. We couldn’t do it without you. We would also like to thank the following restaurants for donating lunches: Papa John’s, Chick-fil-A, Mot’s Barbeque, Blimpie, and Baldino’s.

For many years, Habitat has provided alternative school break volunteer opportunities to college students.

This is a unique one-week volunteer program. Collegiate Challenge offers an education all its own. Students learn practical building skills while helping others They learn about poor living conditions and how decent, affordable housing builds strength, stability and self-reliance for families.
