Fayetteville Area Habitat for Humanity is delighted to express heartfelt gratitude to Lowe's for their generous grant. This impactful grant, totaling $16,500, is poised to make a significant difference in the life of a deserving Spring Lake citizen through an Aging in Place home repair project.
The essence of the grant aligns seamlessly with Fayetteville Area Habitat for Humanity's mission to create safe and sustainable housing solutions for individuals facing various challenges. The grant will enhance the living conditions of an elderly homeowner and her sister, contributing to the creation of a safer and more accessible home environment.
The recipient of this transformative grant is an inspiring individual who has dedicated her life to hard work and community service. Having lived in her home for over 45 years, she cherishes her neighborhood, Holly Hills, Spring Lake, North Carolina. Overflowing with gratitude, she exclaimed, "God is good!" The repairs funded by Lowe's grant will directly address critical safety and accessibility concerns and grab bars in her home, including weatherization of doors, accessibility improvements in the bathroom, and repairs to her deck where she enjoys watching the birds, squirrels, and hummingbirds in her backyard with her dog named Diamond.
What makes this collaboration even more special is the homeowner's commendable history of giving back to the community, particularly through her work with disabled and elderly individuals. She worked up to three jobs simultaneously, including at a Group Home for the disabled before retiring. Now, she gives back by spending time with the elderly, engaging in activities such as washing their hair and doing their nails, while also being a full-time caregiver for her sister. Fayetteville Area Habitat for Humanity is honored to join forces with Lowe's to support someone who has consistently and selflessly positively impacted the lives of others.
This Aging in Place home repair project made possible by Lowe's reflects the commitment of both organizations to create a community where everyone has access to safe and sustainable housing. The project not only addresses immediate safety concerns but also promotes the idea of aging comfortably in one's own home, surrounded by a supportive community.
In conclusion, Lowe's and the Aging in Place grant serves as a beacon of hope, illuminating the path towards a safer and more secure home for these elderly ladies in Spring Lake. Together, Fayetteville Area Habitat for Humanity and Lowe's are making a lasting impact, demonstrating the power of collaboration in building a stronger and more compassionate community.
