Many things have been altered amidst covid-19 but the Pickens County Habitat for Humanity still had a goal to complete their home building project for Clemson University Homecoming. 

Over the last 27 years, the Pickens County Habitat for Humanity has built a home each year for a recipient in need in the community, allowing for long-term stability through an affordable mortgage. The home is built by several Clemson University student volunteers and this year’s build is in memory of Kelsey McGhee, Clemson student and Habitat officer who passed away over the summer. Though social distancing protocols cut the number of volunteers down substantially, over 100 students were still able to lend their hands to the project!

Load Star, Harbin Lumber’s Truss Manufacturing division, has proudly donated the trusses that were a part of the build. This is the 5th year Harbin Lumber has had the opportunity to support Pickens County Habitat for Humanity and we are grateful to be able to take part in the mission of building a better life for recipients and their families.

We know the amount of care that was put into this home will be evidently known by its future owner!
