(Oct. 26, 2018) Habitat for Humanity of Worcester County has received a $40,000 grant from The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation for its upcoming single-family home build in Bishopville, this fall.

The Weinberg Foundation is one of the largest private charitable foundations in the United States. This is the first time Habitat for Humanity of Worcester County has been awarded a grant from this foundation.

This grant makes available essential funding to be used toward a build for a local family in Worcester County in need of decent, affordable housing. Habitat families work in partnership with Habitat Worcester, volunteers and the local community to build their homes.

“We are thrilled to be able to accept this grant award from The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation,” said Andrea Bowland, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Worcester County. “We are grateful to the Foundation for their support, which directly contributes to our efforts to build decent, safe, affordable housing for Worcester County families in need.”

With the new Habitat home build on the horizon, Habitat for Humanity of Worcester County is looking for Home Build Sponsors and volunteers.
