Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County Tennessee accepted a donation from Pastor Willie Lyle of the Sango United Methodist Church (UMC) this week from the proceeds of the 2013 Sango Scamper Road Race. Habitat for Humanity has been the beneficiary of this Sango UMC event for over 20 years.

“We are pleased to continue this long-standing partnership with Sango United Methodist Church. Sango UMC has helped lay the foundation for almost every home we’ve built since 1992 through their overwhelmingly generous support from the proceeds of their annual Sango Scamper Road Race. We’re always excited this time of year – preparing our display for the Sango Scamper Road Race and getting ready to cheer on the participants braving the chill of the early morning  registration time,” states Shelby Logsdon, executive director of Habitat for Humanity.

“Each year Habitat attends this annual event and provides participants and spectators with information about our mission and housing ministry and how to support our ReStore. We want participants to know that Habitat appreciates everyone involved donating their time and money while having fun running or walking that morning,” explains Logsdon.

The 2014 Sango Scamper, offered by Sango UMC, is a great run for all ages and will be held October 25th. Race participants will receive an event t-shirt and other goodies. All participants under 14 will receive medals for their hard work. Sango UMC also plans to offer door prizes of baked goods and top race finishers in each age group and category will receive a trophy as well as a baked good of their choice baked by members of the church. Expert timing of the race will be performed by the Clarksville Running Club. Participants can choose from the 10K course, the 5K course and the 1 mile scenic stroll. This race also includes a wheelchair bracket which is separate from the other age groups. 1st and 2nd place awards will be awarded to wheelchair participants for 5K & 10K.

Habitat for Humanity dedicates new home to Andrews Family after fire

Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County Tennessee recently dedicated its 82nd home to LeRoy and Mary Andrews in partnership with the Tennessee Housing Development Agency and their Building Tennessee initiative. The community celebration was held on Tuesday, August 20th at 6:00pm at the newly built home located at 3302 Jarrell Ridge Road in Montgomery County.

“We’re very excited to welcome LeRoy and Mary as new homeowners in Montgomery County as well as dedicating our 82nd home,” said Shelby Logsdon, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County Tennessee. “With assistance from THDA’s Building Tennessee program, we are able to help them with a much needed hand-up in securing safe and affordable housing.”

The Andrews lost their home, all their possessions, and one of their beloved dogs in a devastating fire in August 2012. The couple came to Habitat looking for assistance and fortunately they qualified for our homeowner program. Throughout 2013, they amassed more than the required 500 sweat equity hours by volunteering in the Habitat ReStore and helping out at the construction site. “The Andrews were here almost every day working alongside staff and volunteers,” said Habitat ReStore manager Kathryn Norbeck-Dayley. “Their commitment to their partnership with Habitat is inspiring to our other homeowners working on their own sweat equity hours.”

 

Habitat for Humanity is an equal opportunity housing lender and does not discriminate in the financing of homes based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or familial status.
