Buckingham Build Gets $25,000 From VHDA

The Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA) recently donated $25,000 to the Buckingham Build Project of the Farmville Area Habitat for Humanity. The donated funds were collected during the VHDA’s annual charity golf tournament, and will go towards three homes set to be constructed at the intersection of Conner and Culbreth Streets in Dillwyn. Pictured accepting the check are: (left to right) build leader Chris Yates, Octavious Harris, home recipient Shelanda Harris, Josiah Harris, Habitat Executive Director Jayne Johnson, Dillwyn Mayor Linda Venable Paige, Rhonda Goldman, and Carolyn Anderson Davis. The project’s groundbreaking is set for 9:30 a.m. Saturday, September 6 at the site. (Photo by Jordan Miles)
