Veterans & Active Military Partner With Habitat

For two days, veterans and active duty military are invited to help build an affordable home for Sea Island Habitat’s newest partner family; Tonya and her two sons, Jalen and Jaden. Tonya served 4 years as a Marine. After years of hard work, Tonya has put herself in a position to afford her first home, through Sea Island Habitat for Humanity.

We will be building on Friday, Nov. 10, 2017 (Marine Corps Birthday) and Saturday, Nov. 11, 2017 (Veterans Day.) You can work one day, both days or even part of a day.

This special event will pay tribute to veterans, combining their work ethic and passion for helping others with Habitat’s mission of bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope. Construction experiences build strong bonds between fellow volunteers. These relationships will form the foundation of a strong support network between veterans and active duty military, so that they can help one another transition to and succeed in civilian life. We will start each day by paying tribute to veterans, both those present and those who have fallen or could not make it to the project.
