AAHFH dedicates 84th home for Bishop family sponsored and built by P.E.P.

Athens Area Habitat for Humanity will dedicate its 84th Habitat home built in the Athens area on Saturday February 20, 2016, 3pm at 145 Carter Street. First Presbyterian Church, Ebenezer Baptist Church West and the Presbyterian Student Center at UGA joined to sponsor and build the home as the PEP Partnership.

The home was built by and for Godwin and Melissa Bishop and their two sons. The Bishop family will join Athens Habitat, community volunteers and members of the PEP Partnership to celebrate this exciting new life chapter. The Bishop home dedication is significant because it continues Athens Area Habitat for Humanity’s mission of bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope. The dedication will include fellowship, light refreshments and speakers. Athens Area Habitat for Humanity is so proud of this milestone and wants everyone to attend.

“The PEP Partnership is an inspiring collaboration that highlights once again the great works that can be accomplished when people of diverse backgrounds join together for a common cause.” says Athens Area Habitat for Humanity’s Executive Director Spencer Frye
