Thanks to our wonderful volunteers, supporters and our great leaders in the Chattahoochee Valley, the 2019 Millard Fuller Legacy Build was a tremendous success. Eleven families, including those who lost homes and loved ones in the March 3 Beauregard tornado, now have simple, decent places to live. Scroll for photos, video and story links from the build. Also, look for a “Project Christmas Joy” special December 10 on Hallmark Drama network. It was filmed on location during the build and will feature your work and some of our partner families.
More than 420 volunteers from at least 29 states and seven different countries came together in Lee County, Alabama, last week to build 11 new homes. The build was part of the recovery effort that has followed the devastating March 3, 2019, EF-4 tornado that ravaged parts of Lee County, particularly the rural community of Beauregard. This two-minute overview video features some highlights of volunteers at work, as well as comments from Chattahoochee Fuller Center Project Executive Director Kim Roberts, house captain A.J. Jewell and the Rev. Rusty Sowell of Providence Baptist Church, the host church for the build.
