LAURINBURG — Habitat for Humanity of Scotland County is accepting applications from people who would like to live in the first Habitat for Humanity home in Robeson County.
“We are building the first ever Habitat home in Robeson County in Maxton,” said Chris Carpenter, executive director for Habitat for Humanity of Scotland County. “It’s a partnership with the North Carolina State Employees Credit Union. Their foundation is donating money to every county in North Carolina to help build a home. Any county that doesn’t have a Habitat for Humanity in their county had to have a neighboring county take up their home, and that’s what we’re doing.”
The application period will run from today to July 25. Applications can be picked up at the Habitat for Humanity of Scotland County office or the Habitat Restore, both located at 12340 McCall Road in Laurinburg. Office hours are 10 to a.m. to 4 p.m. from Tuesdays through Fridays and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays.
Carpenter said he is also looking for volunteers and subcontractors who are willing to donate their time and services to help build the home.
To inquire about the application process or to pledge to volunteer, call 910-276-3337.
