Join us on Thursday as we FRAME UP “Carol’s Home”

Monday, July 21, 2008 – A dream that has been long in the making will come to fruition this Thursday, when more than 30 volunteers will come together to build the walls for Carol’s Home. The framing on this local version of an Extreme Home Makeover is a one-day deal and workers will be hammering from sun up to sun down to make this dream come true for Carol Armstrong and her family.

Please join us anytime on Thursday, July 24, 2008 at the house site (704 Tierra Loop in the Hidden Hills subdivision) in the Knightsville section of Summerville. “Carol’s Home” is a heartfelt project organized by the Charleston Trident Home Builders Association, which heard about Carol being attacked by a stranger and decided to help by building her a brand new, handicap-accessible home. 

In 2002, Carol Armstrong was brutally attacked by a stranger as she was locking up a medical building she had just finished cleaning.  The man stole her purse and her car and left her for dead.  Carol survived the attack and a stroke that followed.  The attack left her confined to a wheelchair and partially blind. In her current home, Carol is dependent on her husband and two young sons to move from room to room, as her wheelchair cannot make it through doorways. In the new home that members of the Charleston Trident Home Builders Association are building, Carol will have the freedom to cook, paint and go about her daily life without asking for assistance.
