Thank You!

The HBA of Greenville would like to thank the Community Service Committee for their hard work this past weekend on a recently acquired Habitat for Humanity home. The volunteer group included Eddie Howard of Howard Custom Builders, John Wolfrom of Providence Realty, Jon Statom of Palmetto Exterminators, and Amy Torlay of Hughes Supply. They painted the interior of the home, replaced the back deck, and also replaced windows along with many other smaller projects. The committee has also received gifts in kind to complete this home and get the family into the home by the end of summer. Some of those gifts in kind include a new roof furnished by Allcon Roofing, new plumbing and fixtures provided by Hughes Supply, and Crawlspace Incapsulation provided by Palmetto Exterminators. However, we are still in need of several other items!
For more information or if you would like to help please call or email Crystal Yanes at the HBA Office. 864-254-0133 or

Rosewood Communities breaks ground on a house to benefit Homes For Hope

Rosewood Communities breaks ground on a house to benefit Homes For Hope

Craig Perfect, Allcon of Greenville

Rosewood Communities broke ground this week on a new house that will benefit Homes For Hope, a charity that raises money for Hope International.

The home will be built at Waterstone Cottages on Blacks Drive and is the third home built by Rosewood Communities for Homes For Hope.

Rosewood Communities teams up with its suppliers and subcontractors to build the home.  The partners in the home donate or deeply discount goods and services, maximizing the proceeds form the sale of the home.  When the home is sold the profits are donated to Homes For Hope.  Hope International uses the money to make micro loans to small businesses in third-world countries like Haiti.  To date, Rosewood’s contributions to Homes for Hope have helped more than 9,000 people.

Member companies contributing to Rosewood’s Homes for Hope project include Allcon of Greenville, which with its suppliers donates the roof of the home, Carter Lumber, which donates the door and window packages, and Greer State Bank, which finances the project.

Homes for Hope, based in Frisco, Texas, also is an HBA member.  To learn more about Homes for Hope, click here.
