LEE CO., GA (WALB) - The Lee County Commission and Habitat for Humanity are coming together to provide Habitat homes for veterans.
Lee County is closing on multiple homes from FEMA and before they tear them down, they are donating anything salvageable like cabinets, washers and dryers, and even doors to Habitat to resell in their Restore store.
Proceeds from the Restore store will go toward building a new home for veterans.
Executive Director Scooter Courtney said this is a wonderful way to give back to the community.
"Flint River Habitat for Humanity honors our veterans all year long and especially coming up on Memorial Day and Fourth of July. We want to just remember the sacrifices some of them have given," said Courtney.
Habitat and Lee County are hoping to have multiple homes built for veterans and encourages any veterans needing assistance to drop by the Restore store on North Slappey for an application into the program.
