Gaston County Police Partner with Habitat for Humanity

Gaston County Police Department employees are stepping forward to help one of their own by playing a big part in building a Habitat for Humanity of Gaston County house.

Approximately eighty people from the Gaston County Police Department are providing assistance with building a brand new residence for Mary Holmes who is tasked with keeping police headquarters neat, orderly, and clean all by herself on a daily basis.  She is an asset to the department and is truly part of the police family. 

Personnel were quick to sign up to work one of nine volunteer build dates from mid-September to late November, 2018.  The first scheduled date of September 15th was blocked by Hurricane Florence, but the next Saturday got off to an early start and saw four walls built and put in place by the end of the day. 

Mary Holmes will be participating in the work days as part of her commitment to the Habitat for Humanity contract.  She also logged over 200 volunteer hours in the Habitat Re-Store on Franklin Blvd, Gastonia, NC.

Chief Joseph Ramey is proud to partner with Habitat for Humanity of Gaston County in this worthy effort and will be there swinging a hammer beside his co-workers.
