THANK YOU to the volunteers and all who participated in the annual Dataw Donation Day drop off on Saturday, May 13th. Donors like you help to make our building possible, ensuring that our Family Partners will be able to achieve that needed hand up to reach the dream of homeownership.We currently have nine Family Partners in our affordable housing program. All are industriously earning their sweat equity requirements working on our construction sites, ReStore, warehouse, office and also representing LowCountry Habitat at community events.

Dataw Donation Day was a huge success, but if you have larger items such as furniture, appliances, building materials, electric, plumbing, or flooring materials, please call the ReStore at 843-525-0055 and schedule a FREE donation pickup.

Thanks to your continued support of our mission, we have built or rehabbed 46 homes to date, providing safe, affordable housing for over 58 adults and 121 children.Together, we are making a difference in our community.
