CFCP should be commended, imitated

On Friday afternoon, Loretta Brewer received the keys to her new home, which was provided by the Chattahoochee Fuller Center Project.

Brewer, an employee at EAMC-Lanier Hospital, admitted that she had always wanted to own her own home, but had all but given up on ever achieving this dream. However, thanks to the project, which was started with the intent to build affordable housing, she has her home.

The residence is the 39th such home built and the fourth since September 2017. Work on number 40 is set to begin soon, while number 41 and 42 will be built this fall.

With all of this in mind, the Fuller Center should be thanked and supported in any way possible, whether it be with our time, talents or money.

Oftentimes, when we give to charities we do not get to see the end result of our donation.

For many, charity is an action with an intangible result. This is not true of the Fuller Center.

If you give them money or supplies, you can see where it went.

If you give them time, it will be your hands that help someone else.

If you want to see the results of charity, just drive by any of the homes the project has built. Each one is safe, clean and affordable.

The Fuller Center is truly an organization that should be commended for everything it’s done and everything it will do in the future.

It’s an example of charity at its finest.
