Three new Habitat for Humanity homes will soon be coming to Badin, thanks to a land donation made by Alcoa Power Generating Inc. (APGI).
APGI has donated three vacant lots in Badin to Stanly County Habitat for Humanity. The organization expects to begin construction of new homes on these lots later this year.
“Alcoa’s partnership enables Stanly County Habitat to continue our mission that everyone should have a decent place to live,” said Cemita Gibbs, executive director of Stanly County Habitat for Humanity. “With these additional lots we will be able to give a ‘hand up’ and provide a no interest mortgage for additional families in our community. Alcoa is a corporation that sees the unique role home ownership plays in the development and resiliency of our community and we feel they are committed to helping make a difference.”
Alcoa has been a long-time partner of Stanly County Habitat for Humanity. It has previously donated two lots in Badin and a pickup truck to the organization.
“We’ve seen what a positive impact Habitat for Humanity makes in our community and we’re delighted that we can play a part in providing new homes to deserving families,” said Nicole Wright, APGI Foundation Coordinator. “Our employees look forward to volunteering on the construction of these new homes.”
