The High Country Association of Realtors (HCAR) recently presented Watauga County Habitat for Humanity a check for $1000. This donation will support the App Builds a Home project being built in Watauga Habitat’s eco-friendly GreenWood neighborhood. App Builds a Home is a student-led, campus-wide partnership building a Habitat home for a local family. The students, faculty, and staff of Appalachian State University have come together to design, fund, and build the home.
“The High Country Association of Realtors is not only committed to helping people become homeowners but is also investing in affordable homeownership opportunities for our Habitat families,” said Allison Jennings, Director of Development at Watauga Habitat. “By supporting us, they are helping families build and buy their own home and achieve the American Dream of owning a home,” said Jennings. The donation from HCAR will be matched by Curt and Linda Gillespie of Blowing Rock, NC and Naples, Florida.
