Working with Dorchester Habitat for Humanity and the ReStore

Working with Habitat and the Stingrays Working hard with Habitat for Humanity and the South Carolina Stingrays.

The past few weeks have been filled with wonderful experiences helping our beloved community.  Our team at SERVPRO of Greater Northern Charleston and Dorchester County had the profound opportunity to work with Dorchester Habitat for Humanity, and the South Carolina Stingrays hockey team on a recent build in Summerville, SC.   We got to send some of our staff to work on a new home build for the Dorchester Habitat for Humanity and were able to spend our day giving back to the community and building hope for a couple families. 

The day was spent working with the Habitat for Humanity construction manager as he showed us and the Stingrays hockey players and staff which jobs we would be performing, and what tools we would be using.  He paired us each up and sent us around the two homes being worked on to help with the building process.  From setting new window sills and baseboards, to shoring up the rafters and roof, there was a lot of jobs to be worked on, even painting and finishing up some of the more completed rooms.  There is so much opportunity to volunteer for Habitat for Humanity and their ReStore in Summerville. 

As a leading restoration company in our area we are used to having to help people get back into their homes after they have faced unwanted disaster, so we know well the importance of home building and preservation.  But it was something entirely different to be able to volunteer on building someone’s very first home knowing that it’s going to such a great cause for the community, where people may not be able to afford a home of their own.  It was quite humbling to give back in such a way, and utilize some of our team’s skillset in doing so.  We definitely plan to help build in the future on their next project homes.

The whole experience was rounded out with our SERVPRO of Greater Northern Charleston and Dorchester County also being able to make a donation on behalf of Dorchester’s Habitat for Humanity on the special Country Carolina Night at the January 6th South Carolina Stingrays game.  We were able to showcase the great work Dorchester Habitat for Humanity does for our entire community.  It was a fun night of friends, hockey, and community support that provided memories for years to come.  Thank you to the South Carolina Stingrays, and the Dorchester Habitat for Humanity staff, for enjoying such a special night, and overall experience, with our team and work family.
