On Friday, August 17, volunteers from Weyerhaeuser had a productive day at the Habitat worksite!
The 2018 Thomas Price Caldwell Jr. & Sr. Memorial Golf Tournament Benefitting Starkville Area Habitat for Humanity was held May 18 at Starkville Country Club. Twenty-four teams competed, over $36,000 was raised for Habitat, and a great time was had by all! Congratulations to our First Place Overall Team, Clark Beverages.
Many thanks to our Collegiate Challenge Volunteers from Rockford University in Rockford, IL, Oakton Community College in Des Plaines, IL, and Notre Dame Prep in Towson, MD! In three short weeks they progressed from a slab to a home with a roof, exterior siding, and interior drywall installed. We also owe much gratitude to the members of our community who provided food, fellowship, entertainment, and spiritual inspiration. It is amazing what volunteers can accomplish in such a short period of time!
The citizens of Owens Street had what will hopefully be the first of many neighborhood parties after the March 4 Collegiate Challenge groundbreaking. Homeowners, Habitat board members, volunteers and friends, and Collegiate Challenge volunteers from Rockford University enjoyed finger foods and fellowship to celebrate the completion of Owens Street and the beginning of another Collegiate Challenge.
