A group of about a dozen Carolina Meadows residents from the Outreach Committee and Friendly Volunteers recently helped label and stamp more than 1,000 annual appeal reminder postcards for Chatham Habitat for Humanity.
“We are continually amazed and grateful for the generous support from the residents of Carolina Meadows,” said Habitat Volunteer and Partnership Manager David Snyder. “In the past, members of this community have joined with Chatham Habitat for amazing outreach efforts including raising enough money for the completion of a home for a low-income family, folding and stuffing thousands of newsletters, providing food for volunteers coming out of state to help build homes, as well as many individual efforts supporting the continued construction of safe, decent, affordable, and energy-efficient homes. This fall was no different.”

“In addition, these reminder cards have resulted in thousands of dollars in additional donations in previous years, which we expect to see again this year from these efforts,” he added.
