A groundbreaking ceremony was held in early March 2020 for a home built by Carolina Arbors’ volunteers for Habitat for Humanity of Durham. Due to COVID-19, construction was temporarily paused; once North Carolina moves into Phase III of the state’s reopening plan, the Carolina Arbors’ team will be back in action.
Carolina Arbors’ residents recently made a significant food contribution to the Feed My Sheep Food Pantry.

Carolina Arbors, a 55 and older community,
has been actively involved in giving back since its inception in 2013. In the early days of the neighborhood’s development, residents formed The Community Awareness Club to support local organizations. Residents have also formed a Community Outreach Club to launch food, holiday and school drives for nonprofits like Inter-Faith Food Shuttle and Urban Ministries of Durham. “Carolina Arbors is a neighborhood of energetic, civic-minded individuals who are willing to give back to the community,” says Loretta Woodall, a Carolina Arbors’ resident. Additionally, Carolina Arbors’ resident John Orth helped organize a group of volunteers for Habitat for Humanity of Durham. The volunteers, with the contribution of a $40,000 donation from PulteGroup, raised enough funds to build a Habitat home in Durham for a former Navy nurse as well as start a fundraising campaign to build a second home for an Army veteran.
