The Searles family is home!
Habitat for Humanity-DeKalb, sponsor SunTrust bank employees, volunteers that helped build the home, and new neighbors came together to dedicate the home to the Searles family on June 20, 2015. Ms. Searles and her entire family of four put in over 250 sweat equity hours at various Habitat projects with 150 of those hours spent on her own home. She balanced this with being an active mother of three and a valued member of her work group at her full-time job.
“I’ve worked on many homes in DeKalb County, I am proud of that. I just want to say thank you so much to Habitat for Humanity-DeKalb, SunTrust Bank, Lowe’s and all the volunteers, just thank you so much. “When asked if they had picked out their new rooms yet, the three children all answered with an immediate, “yes.” The children will be enjoying their new fenced backyard with their new puppy.
