Caring for Neighbors
Southport Presbyterian Church donates $25,000 to Brunswick County Habitat for Humanity.
Southport Presbyterian Church has donated $25,000 to Brunswick County Habitat for Humanity (BCHFH) toward the building of a partner family home in Southport. This generous gift will offset $25,000 worth of costs incurred by BCHFH for the building of one of their newest partner family homes in the Sea Pines subdivision of Southport.
“Since 1976 Habitat’s work has been built on a foundation of faith,” says Carlo Montagano, Habitat’s executive director. “As a Christian ministry, we have a long history of partnering with local churches to deliver housing to the community. Churches often provide lunches to our construction sites, volunteers to build, mentors, prayer and spiritual support to families in the program. We are very blessed at the commitment and generosity of SPC, and hope to work with other churches in the county as well.”
All who desire to be a part of Habitat work are welcome, regardless of religious preference or background. Habitat also has a policy of building with people in need regardless of race or religion.
“Being a Habitat House Sponsor is a wonderful opportunity to partner with our community while fulfilling part of Southport Presbyterian Church’s (SPC) mission, which commits us to care for our neighbors and act as faithful stewards of God’s abundance,” says Laura Cacchione, a member of SPC’s Mission Ministry. “One of the guiding principles and values of our church is to serve others with humility, compassion and justice, so this project enables us to carry out our mission and support our values.”
