SCBT Donates $6,000 to Habitat for Humanity
ORANGEBURG, SC - South Carolina Bank and Trust presented a check for $6,000 to Edisto Habitat for Humanity in Orangeburg County on Tuesday, September 22.
The donation was accepted by Jamie Bozardt, executive director of Edisto Habitat for Humanity.
“SCBT’s continued partnership with our affiliate continues to help families in the Orangeburg area have a way out of their deplorable living conditions. The partnership has made the dream of homeownership for many Orangeburg families become a reality,” said Bozardt.
Habitat for Humanity sells homes to low-income families in need of housing at no profit and no interest. Families must have reliable income and show their willingness to partner by giving 350 hours of “sweat equity” time working on their own home, on the homes of other families, and by attending homeowner and budgeting classes. Homeowner payments go into a revolving fund to help build more habitat homes in the Orangeburg area.
"Habitat for Humanity is an essential program that provides needed services to the citizens of Orangeburg County," said Gene McConnell, SCBT regional president for Orangeburg.
This donation represents a year-long effort by the bank for four donations of $1,200 for four houses and another donation of $1,200 for fundraising events.
