Fuller Center partners to help Hampton residents

  Henry County Fuller Center has been busy this summer with a multi-house project in Hampton, with the assistance of Wesley Way United Methodist Church, as part of the River of Life Build, which took place late last month.

  Local volunteers, along with volunteers from the River of Life, helped to rehabilitate four Hampton homes within the same neighborhood. The homes, which are located on Derrick Drive and Hampton Oaks Dr., had been on the Henry County Fuller Center waiting list since last year.

  According to Shane Persaud, President of the Board of Directors for the Henry County Fuller Center, most of the work occurred in late June with the assistance of Wesley Way and other Methodist churches who participate in the River of Life program, and then again last week as local volunteers finished up the project.

  “This year, the River of Life had seven groups from Georgia, one from Kentucky and one from South Carolina which brought about 130 volunteers to Henry County. Of those, about 80 volunteers were assigned to the Fuller Center,” said Persaud.

  Volunteer made much needed repairs and improvements to the four homes, including porch and deck repairs, painting, landscaping and roofing.

  “It was amazing to see the transformation not only of the homes, but with the homeowners as well,” said Persaud.
