Last week we had a lawnmower that would not work and the body was falling apart. Our Site Supervisor Tracey Parrish pushed it to the curb in hopes that someone would be able to fix and use it. When he returned to the site he found it put back by the garage with this note on it!
If you can’t read this note, here is what it says:
I took some time and got an oblonged washer on the motor bolt. Ran fine considering it’s set up for mulching. My donation to your efforts to help our community. Your Friend, Lawn Mower Man
We want you to know where ever you are Lawn Mower Man – Thank You. Your selfless act has inspired us and we hope it inspires others!
Board Chairman, Bill Welser said, “We will miss Charlotte, her many contributions to the affiliate, and her passion for the Habitat mission. We wish her much continued success and Godspeed!”
Wendy Byrnes, currently a Habitat Board Member, will serve as the interim President while a search is being conducted to fill that position.]]>
Habitat for Humanity of Brevard County has started a garden area at the new campus at 4515 Babcock St NE in Palm Bay and we are looking for volunteers. If you would like to learn gardening from one of our master gardeners, volunteers are needed to help water plants, prune bushes and tend to the beautification of the new campus.
Also needed are groups or individuals who would like to help maintain the new campus in Palm Bay. This is a great project for youth groups who want to give back to the community and help Habitat show off our new home.
If you would like to have your group volunteer or would like to set up a time to come out individually please call Mollie, our volunteer coordinator, at the office, 321-728-4009 ext 106 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org]]>

Habitat is a Christian housing ministry, which builds houses in partnership with very low-income families, and welcomes involvement from all people. The houses are sold to families through no interest loans and at no profit. Habitat holds the mortgages and recycles the principal payments to fund future houses. Construction expenses are kept to a minimum by utilizing volunteer labor, and developing partnerships with churches, businesses, and other organizations to provide cash and “in-kind” donations of building materials, services, and property. Habitat obtains operating and program funds through the application for federal and local grants, community fund-raising events, and other donations.
