In time for the Christmas holiday, Marianett and her two children were surprised with a Christmas blessing they did not expect. Daimler is a local company in Gaston County has recently partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Gaston County in order to provide affordable housing. The employees went a step above swinging a hammer for Marianett and her family. They decided to spread the cheer of Christmas by purchasing gifts for the whole family. The family was extremely humble and grateful for the gifts provided for them as they have had a hard year. Marianett's family is from Puerto Rico and were impacted by Hurricane Maria in September. Since then Marianett has been sending anything she has to her family in Puerto Rico. On behalf of the family and Habitat for Humanity of Gaston County, we want to extend a huge thank you for the gifts and the continued partnership.WELCOME FUTURE HOMEOWNERS

1. The idea that became Habitat grew from the fertile soil of Koinonia Farm, a community outside Americus, Georgia, founded by farmer and biblical scholar Clarence Jordan. It was there that Jordan and Millard and Linda Fuller develop the concept of partnership housing.
2. The Fullers went to the African country of Zaire, now Democratic Republic of the Congo, to test their idea. “Within three years, we had built more than 120 houses,” Linda says. “That’s when we decided that this idea would work most everywhere in the world.” The Fullers started Habitat in 1976.
3. That same year, Sylvia and Ernesto Torres partnered with the first local Habitat started in the U.S. in their hometown of San Antonio, Texas. Habitat currently works in 1,400 local communities all over the U.S. and 70 countries around the world, from Argentina to Zambia.
4. In 1984, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, volunteered in New York City. Since then, the Carters have helped build, renovate and repair 3,944 Habitat homes in 14 countries, while raising awareness of the critical need for affordable housing. “Habitat is not a sacrifice that we make for others,” President Carter says. “Habitat is a blessing for those of us who volunteer to help others.”
5. The first Habitat ReStore opened 25 years ago in Winnipeg, Canada. Now, the proceeds from more than 930 of these home improvement stores and donation centers help build homes in local communities.
6. We raised the walls on the first house to be built along the U.S. Gulf Coast after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.
