Despite a period of gray and wet weather lately, the Wall Raising day for Dorchester Habitat for Humanity’s 51st home and Faith Build dawned bright and clear. Members of our Faithful Few crew, gathered together in a prayer circle with future homeowner Shantell Smith and Pastor Bob Howell from Bethany United Methodist Church on September 18th to bless the site and work to be done. Upon reflection, Pastor Howell said, “We are blessed to help Shantell, not just Bethany but the church community as a whole…The blessings on those who give of themselves, comeback, multiply and runneth over.” Amen!
Con Chellis, local Allstate agent and Board Member was also there and recognized for his donation through Allstate’s Hands in the Community program.
Because of Chellis’ outstanding volunteerism, The Allstate Foundation awarded a $1,000 grant to the non-profit organization DorchesterHabitat for Humanity. Shortly after the presentation, Chellis and the rest of the crew joined Shantell in raising the walls of her home.
The Summerville Journal Scene also made an appearance that morning and wrote a very nice article about the Faith Build. Read it here.
