This week, the Habitat Readers program completed a totem pole build at three libraries in Lincoln County: West Lincoln Library, Shanklin Library, and Jonas Library. During the event, the children learned about the key mission of HFHLC as well as the history and meaning of totem poles, made by Native Americans of the Pacific Northwest.
We are utilizing a new volunteer registration and calendar system called VolunteerUp. With this new system volunteers will be able to register for volunteer shifts for construction, ReStore, Neighborhood Revitalization projects and more. Projects will be posted ahead of time and you will be able to schedule shifts for up to three months in advance.
Wednesday, June 21st, marked another change at Lincoln County Habitat. We are welcoming our new Board President, Donna Beringer, President of Carolina Federal Credit Union in Cherryville. Donna has been on our board for two years, and has served as Vice President and Treasurer. She has great passion for Habitat, and has been a great leader and supporter as our affiliate has grown. What Donna brings is a great deal of continuity and support, as well as, a different perspective as our rapid growth, while continuing, it is beginning to settle more into routine.
Our Affiliate has been selected to host four (4) AmeriCorps members for the 2017-2018 program year! This will be the second year that our affiliate has participated in the AmeriCorps program.
