Habitat Project Set To Build Abingdon Home in October


Spreading its home-building ministry to neighboring churches, Central will partner with three Abingdon churches and Washington County Habitat for Humanity to create a new home for Leslie and Haley Charlton in October.

 Leslie is a single-mom raising her 16-year-old daughter Haley.

 Green Spring Presbyterian Church, Sinking Spring Presbyterian Church and Woodland Hills Christian Church are joining the Habitat movement, jump-starting their efforts by working with Central, which will be building its eighth home in seven years..

 For the first time, Central will work with Washington County Habitat, based in Glade Spring, Va.  Typically, Washington County’s Habitat projects require several months of work. 

 This will be the Virginia agency’s first “blitz build,” Central’s preferred way of building a home in less than a month.

 Habitat committee members laid out plans to build the home beginning Oct. 8, on a lot sandwiched between Wiley Road and Leonard Street, just north of West Main and east of Hwy. 58.

 The home should be completed Oct. 27, ready for a Nov. 4 dedication.

 All three partner churches have members serving on the steering committee, enriching our committee and receiving training and experience in the habitat build process.  All churches will provide volunteers throughout the build, as well as valuable resources from the Abingdon area.

 Central’s Habitat Committee Chair Connie Bullock said, “This project gives us a great opportunity to develop new relationships, learn through the eyes of new partners, and equip others to carry on the mission of Habitat for Humanity.

 “While we look forward to having many volunteers from our partner churches and the Abingdon area,” Connie said, “we definitely need plenty of Central members to make this a successful build.”

 Volunteer forms are available before and after worship services, outside the church office, and online.

 Deadline for volunteer forms is Sept. 17.

 Volunteers will receive a schedule, map, and parking instructions.

 All previous Central projects coordinated with Holston Habitat in Tennessee, though Bristol homes have been built on both sides of the state line. Outside of Habitat projects, after Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf coast, Central Presbyterian partially built a home in Bristol and carried it to Mississippi and finished the build on location.
