Habitat House dedicated

Cabarrus County has been saddened to learn recently of the departure of Philip Morris and sale of CTC. So it is nice to know that locally owned S&D Coffee Inc. is investing in the future of the community by sponsoring the home of Jatana Fleming and her son, Tyler, through Habitat for Humanity Cabarrus County.
“We at S&D Coffee are pleased to help such a deserving family realize their dream of home ownership,” said Alan Davis, co-chairman of the board of S&D Coffee Inc. This is the second home that S&D Coffee has sponsored with Habitat Cabarrus. The first was the Olvera family’s home in 2003.
The Fleming family’s home was dedicated and blessed on July 28 at 4 p.m. at 1107 Rhode Island Ave. in Kannapolis.
Jatana, a manager with Commercial Trucking Maintenance, wanted a permanent home with a yard that Tyler could play in. The apartments where they have been living have had increased gang activity, and she wanted to get her son away from that.
After shopping for homes and being frustrated by the cost of conventional mortgages, Jatana came to Habitat. Each Habitat partner family agrees to work with Habitat, acquiring 250 hours of sweat equity, working on other partner families’ homes and their home, too, and taking homeownership classes that cover topics such as financial literacy, home upkeep and retirement planning. Jatana said she enjoyed the process and has learned much about taking care of a home.
She is grateful to S&D Coffee for its interest in the community and the help they have given to her family.
Habitat Cabarrus joins the Fleming family in thanking S&D Coffee and the volunteer groups from Bethel United Methodist Church, First Charter Bank, Rockwell AME Zion Church, Starbucks Coffee (Concord Mills), Sysco Foods, University of Georgia Alumni and the U.S. Marine Corps, Charlotte, who made this dream come true.
