Meet Charles, Danielle, Melody & Athena

BOARD OF DIRECTORS Will Sunter President Elias Mahshie Vice-President Stacy Jones Secretary Tommy Williamson Treasurer Jeff Cardillo Past President

Melody is now a big sister! Athena is the newest member of the family and was born last September. Charles and Danielle want nothing more than to watch their children grow and thrive in a community that they deserve and are dedicated to making it happen. They work every available opportunity to ensure they are able to provide their children with a better life than both of them had growing up.


Their vision is clear. They would love to become part of a community that helps one another out and to have their children know that home is a safe and loving place to grow up. The opportunity to build memories in a home where they can have sleepovers and their friends can visit to play is their dream.

Currently, Charles and Danielle live too far away from the few friends that Melody has.

They are living with his mother in a small two bedroom home with limited access to the kitchen and laundry facilities. Tensions have grown between the family and the stress has become unhealthy for all. The addition of a new baby is too much to handle and has made their living situation very difficult. Charles and Danielle have recently picked out the colors for their new home and are diligently completing all the requirements necessary to become one of 34 Charlotte County Habitat homeowners this year. We are proud of their accomplishments to provide a better life for their family. God Bless You, Gabrielle Reineck Senior Director of Outreach

Volunteer Spotlight Thank you Gayle Kegg! Gayle is a former Diabetes Educator. She retired in December 2013. Once at home she decided to keep her mind busy and began looking for volunteer work. In 2014 Gayle began volunteering for the Martinsville Habitat for Humanity in Indiana. She started working in the office three days a week and loved it. In 2014 Gayle become a snowbird and looked for a Habitat in Charlotte County. She reached out to see if we could use a volunteer in the office and has been with us ever since. She volunteers at both locations depending on the time of year.

Gayle really enjoys the warm, friendly, fun atmosphere that each of the Habitat for Humanity’s offer. She finds volunteering is a rewarding way to give back to others.
