Richmond County Committee
Habitat for Humanity of Moore County has extended its service area to include Richmond County. Habitat for Humanity of Richmond County had not built a home since 1999, and voted in September to become part of Habitat for Humanity of Moore County. Volunteers and staff are currently developing an action plan to purchase land, train Richmond County Committee members in Habitat work and add a Richmond County representative to the Moore County board of directors. Currently, Mrs. Mamie LeGrand and Pastor Ronnie Moore are co-chairing the Richmond County Committee of Habitat.
The Richmond County Committee will be an adjunct of the Moore County affiliate of Habitat, so infrastructure and overhead of an office will be through the existing affiliate. However, we hope that, as soon as possible, the Richmond County Committee will be able to perform the selection, support and construction functions and operate as a locally based part of the affiliate.
The Powers Family and Monroe Family dedications were held on Thursday, July 6, 2006 at 1020 and 1050 Connecticut Avenue, Southern Pines. Sponsors were the Habitat Moore Store and the Fund for Humanity.
