Congratulations to the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity, which serves Hampton, James City County, Newport News, Williamsburg, York County and Poquoson. According to today’s article in the Virginia Gazette, this nonprofit organization has built, renovated or repaired more than 250 houses in our area since it was founded in 1985. It was recently chosen for a $100,000 grant over all Habitat chapters nationwide!
It’s reassuring to know that in our beautiful and affluent area, many people care about providing shelter for families in need. Thank you to all of the volunteers, corporate sponsors, churches, and governing bodies who worked together to make these dreams come true for so many families.
