CORNELIUS, N.C. (June 7, 2016) – On June 7, Our Towns Habitat for Humanity welcomed Sabrina Torrence and her two sons home.

Torrence contributed 400 sweat equity hours and attended homeownership classes to receive the keys to her family’s new home at 132 Burke Circle in Mooresville, North Carolina.

To make this new home a reality, Lowe’s donated $50,000 towards the construction. In addition, Lowe’s employee volunteers assisted with landscaping projects in the front and back yard.

“At Lowe’s, we know how important having a home is to building a strong foundation for a family,” said James Frison, Lowe’s director of community relations. “We take great pride in helping the Torrence family have a place of their own to call home.”

Lowe’s partners with Habitat for Humanity to build decent and affordable homes in Mooresville and around the United States. Since 2003, Lowe’s has committed more than $63 million to Habitat and helped more than 5,500 families improve their living conditions. This year, Lowe’s and Habitat for Humanity International have set a goal to help 1,000 families have safe, stable homes by the holidays, and the Torrences are one of those families.

Improved living conditions are critical for Torrence and her two sons who suffer from severe allergies. The family recently lived in an apartment where conditions impacted her sons’ allergies. The single mother shared, “We’re extremely excited and blessed to move into our new home where my sons can breathe more easily. Our Towns Habitat for Humanity has provided a wonderful opportunity for us to live in a safe and affordable home.”

“It’s always with great joy that we dedicate a new home,” said Jeff Porter, executive director of Our Towns Habitat for Humanity. “Thanks to Lowe’s and its support in our communities, we’re able to continue our mission of building strength, stability, self-reliance and shelter for deserving families like the Torrence family.”
