Southern Wesleyan students build Habitat home
Building ties to one another and to the community, Southern Wesleyan University students are constructing a Habitat for Humanity house.
The structure, located at 107 Joy Street in Liberty, is being built by university volunteers through Habitat for Humanity of Pickens County. As a sponsoring organization, Southern Wesleyan has pledged to raise $15,000 toward the cost of the house and supply volunteers for construction, according to Southern Wesleyan University Chaplain Ken Dill. The average Habitat for Humanity house requires 3,000 hours of volunteer labor, he said.
The house will be a home for an Easley waitress and her three sons. The family is now living with relatives because their mobile home was consumed with mold from water damage.
