Melissa broke down into tears before she hammered the first nail in what will be the place that Melissa and her son Isaiah will call home. Dominion Energy is sponsoring Melissa’s build. In addition to financing the build and supplying volunteer support, Dominion Energy’s Vice President of Financial Management & Integration, Iris Griffin presented Central SC Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Roy Kramer with a $60,000 check. The money will be used to help fund the local Habitat affiliates Neighborhood Revitalization efforts currently underway in Cayce.
“Community vitality is one of the four focus areas of the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation. The ongoing work Habitat for Humanity is doing to revitalize our local communities is a natural fit. We are proud to support these efforts through grants and employee volunteers,” Griffin said.
“We are overjoyed to have Dominion Energy’s support in our efforts to address affordable housing and neighborhood revitalization needs in the Midlands,” Kramer said. The funding will allow us to repair homes in the Broad Acres neighborhood of Cayce, an aging neighborhood we are in the process of revitalizing. Thanks to Dominion Energy, more people will have a decent place to live,” Kramer said.
