More than 100 volunteers serving this week in Lanett, Alabama

LANETT, Alabama — A busy week of Chattahoochee Fuller Center Project work in Millard Fuller’s hometown has drawn more than 100 out-of-town volunteers to help.

More than 50 of the volunteers are from a youth group at Minden, Louisiana’s First Baptist Church — the same group that came two years ago to assemble walls that were used in the 2021 Millard Fuller Legacy Build in nearby West Point. Nearly 50 more volunteers are from New Oregon United Methodist Church of Fort Payne, Alabama.

The primary project is a duplex for senior homeowner partners. Built near the two senior cottages dedicated last year, the two 768-square-foot units will provide safe new housing for Jimmy and Patricia Carlisle on one side and Angela McCray in the adjacent unit. There will be multiple other projects for the volunteers, including a Block of Blessings clean-up in the Jackson Heights neighborhood.

The Valley Times-News has a preview of this week’s work, and The Fuller Center for Housing’s communications department is scheduled to make a site visit later this week to report on the progress.
