Lee Co. flood homes will not go to waste

August 9, 2002

Flood homes in Lee County primed for demolition will not be a total waste. Flint River Habitat for Humanity is stripping all usable materials from the properties to use for new homes.

Fifteen houses are on the list to be torn down. The company performing the demolition agreed to let Habitat have what materials are in good shape, like cabinets, doors and toilets.

Executive Director Stacey Odom-Driggers says, "It will be a win situation for everyone. Like all non profits we are really suffering. So this will be a big boom saving us money on things we have to buy and making a little extra money on things we sell in the resale store so we're really excited."

Habitat for Humanity has three weeks to take what they can before the homes will be torn down. If you would like to help, call the Flint River Habitat for Humanity at 229-446-8199.
