Volunteers in west Charlotte help work on home for woman in need

CHARLOTTE N.C. — Volunteers in west Charlotte spent Saturday working on a Habitat for Humanity home for a woman in need.

Chevon Faulkner moved to Charlotte 18 years ago and has been displaced four times.

In October, Olympic High School students built the house at the school. Then, in April, crews moved it to her neighborhood.

Former students who worked on the project before were invited out to volunteer again.

“As it relates to the youth pouring into my home, they are learning the trade as well. So they are paying it forward as well as helping me. Couldn’t ask for more,” Faulkner said. “And then the donations and things that pour in, it’s all a ripple effect. You keep impacting one. You keep going and helping others. I love it (and) appreciate the help.”

Faulkner said after her long journey, she is just happy to finally be a homeowner.
