On Saturday 30th July, a team from Palmer Chiropractic College came all the way from Daytona to help us lay the first turf at Pinehurst subdivision, Edgewater. The lawn was placed at the future home of the Herrera family, who are excited to be moving soon into their new house. Dixie Herrera has worked very hard indeed to help build this and other homes for Habitat families, and loves how her home now looks.
The Palmer students come several times a year, and are a really great help every time. SEV Habitat is grateful for the continued support of our energetic local college students, both in teams and individually, at the Re-Store and the build.
Laying turf on a hot morning is not an easy task, but they took on the job and got it finished.
This home was sponsored by Publix, who worked here in the early build stages, bringing weekly teams from Publix stores. It now looks really beautiful, and blends well with the rural surroundings.
