The popular cliche “It takes a village,” carries some substance in this instance.
Partnering with the Town of Moncks Corner, the Berkeley County Habitat for Humanity is in the process of making yet another local family’s dreams of owning a home come true.
“I think Moncks Corner is the leader in Berkeley County in building Habitat for Humanity homes,” said Mayor Bill Peagler. “Our goal with the Town of Moncks Corner has been to improve the quality of life for our residents. Partnering with Eastwood Homes and Habitat for Humanity goes a long way in revitalizing our communities and improving the quality of life for our residents.”
The mayor, along with representatives from Eastwood Homes and Habitat for Humantiy - Berkeley County gathered at the latest home site in Moncks Corner at 251 Cooper Street in the Wall Street Community on Wednesday, Aug. 20 to observe the longstanding partnership and get an update on the construction progress.
“The Cooper Street home should be completed and ready for occupancy in early October,” said Habitat for Humanity Director Bryant Knepp. “We are very grateful and appreciative of the working relationship we’ve enjoyed with the Town of Moncks Corner and Eastwood Homes.”
Eastwood Homes has been involved with Habitat and Moncks Corner from the beginning.
