The votes have been tallied and we'd like to announce our 2019-2020 Annual Service Partner - Coastal Empire Habitat for Humanity (CEHFH)!  It came down to CEHFH and Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). Thank you all who voted.  
Since 1983, CEHFH has brought low-income working households together with donors and volunteers to build 145 affordable homeownership units in Chatham County. CEHFH also operates a robust homebuyer education and counseling program to equip Habitat homeowners with financial, leadership, and maintenance skills. We look forward to fundraising and providing service to Habitat!  Our Habitat for Humanity Consolidation Project will involve working on the new training and office space, as CEFHF consolidates its programs under one roof at its ReStore (701 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd in downtown Savannah).  With Metro's volunteers, we'll help reduce the labor costs associated with constructing the new space. We'll also help with minor exterior repairs and landscaping work at their current office in preparation of its sale.
Our $10,000 will be used to cover the costs of purchasing the building materials and supplies which are needed for repairs at the current office and build out of the new offices and training area.  Construction is proposed to start in July 2019.
